Comparison of music; Trade routes

This is “Master Musicians of Jajouka”
If you compare the two sounds you will find that they are extremely similar. The purpose of both folk songs are for ritual.

From Morocco

When you go to their website you will find this information: “Brion Gysin, William S. Burroughs, Steven Davis and other writers have connected elements of Jajouka’s musical traditions to Ancient Greek and Phoenician ceremonies.”

“The Masters’ performances feature a dancer dressed as Bou Jeloud, a Pan-like figure half goat half man. Although the character of Bou Jeloud is found all over Morocco, it takes on different form in Joujouka.

In Joujouka, Bou Jeloud gave an Attar ancestor the gift of flute music and bestowed fertility on the village every spring when he danced. The music relating to this is the Masters at their most mind-blowingly powerful”

The half man half goat being is called Bou Jeloud. There is the same being recognized through ritual in Macedonia and Bulgaria.

The music that I posted before this it’s meaning has not been confirmed.
