by Master Musicians of Jajouka
In the The Avant-Guardian n°3 we published a travelogue, which is an impression of the visit by Hendrik Dacquin to the yearly festival of the master musicians of Joujouka.
The manager of The Master Musicians of Jajouka asked us to stress out that at the Eastern Daze festival the real Master Musicians of Jajouka played. She points out that the group visited by Hendrik Dacquin claims unrightly the title of Master Musicians, against all truth. Bachir Attar and his group are the only rightfully claimed masters in the tradition, their music has nothing to do with the other group, Bachir and his group are the only who still master certain techniques and instruments.
