Chaka Chouka: “Sharka”

 

“Sharka” by Chaka Chouka now available on Bandcamp.

 

As well as being available to download here on Simon’s site, “Sharka” by Chaka Chouka is now also available for streaming and download on Bandcamp.

Although only very recently released, “Sharka” is receiving fantastic feedback so don’t miss out!

“Sharka” is a scintillating mix of reggae, Moroccan music and funk. Simon wrote the original music and plays drums, percussion, guitar and melodica

Bernard produced the album and plays bass, organ, keyboards and baritone guitar.

“Sharka” has lyrics in four different languages. Haji’s socially engaged dub poetry lyrics are complimented perfectly by Mouna’s Sufi inspired singing.

This vocal combination, thanks to Bernard’s excellent production remains a constant theme through out the album.

Morocco is a cultural crossroads where North African Berber culture meets the Middle East, the Sahara, sub-Saharan Africa and Europe. Chaka Chouka’s music is a reflection of this and also links seamlessly with the African roots, traditional “mento” music and jazz/ R n B influences of reggae. Listening to the album will infuse your senses with a unique blend of flavours from the Carribean, North Africa and the Middle East…….
