Lahbib Boutaxi

This is an awesome tape from Morocco: passionate and virtuosic on a track to track basis. A slight to yodel in the voice when things get intense. Wall to wall nimble hands and fingers. Get in the zone with Lahbib Boutaxi. I recently did and I don’t think I’ve been the same since.

He’s cool indeed, Hammer. And so are you, for the additional artists.

Love the music and this place, man.

Thank you!

Also, I’m not as deep into this as you two are, but some of what I hear here brings to mind Alpha Yaya Diallo around the period of The Message.

Great stuff this.
