If you dig deep, entrancing songs, dig this: Electric Morocco Land, the new album from Club D'Elf, the Boston-based ensemble led by Mike Rivard. Featuring Moroccan rhythms, instruments, and musicians, Club D'Elf is a revolving cast of musicians including John Medeski and DJ Logic. Electric Moroccoland includes everything from deep, downtempo trance to danceable groove-laden funk. Rivard, a bassist by trade, was first turned on to traditional Moroccan Gnawan music while studying at The Berklee School of Music. He eventually learned to play the sintir, and fell in love with the music. Club D'Elf has since earned a reputation as an original and signature voice in the Boston music scene. They're touring the Northeast starting tomorrow night at World Cafe in Philly. Def check em out when they come near you:
