It’s a long way from Casablanca, but Moroccan-born vocalists and multi-instrumental masters Yassir Chadly and Bouchaib Abdelhadi have found fertile musical soil in Northern California. Together, they collaborated in the East Bay’s Maghreb-meets-jazz Mo’rockin Project, and their paths have intersected with brilliant improvisers like Cuban piano maestro Omar Sosa and protean tenor sax legend Pharoah Sanders. With Chadly on traditional instruments like oud, gimbri and darbuka, and Abdelhadi on oud, Moroccan violin and percussion, they draw on their deep knowledge of various North African traditions from al-Ÿqa to Gnawa and beyond. Elemental and entrancing, Chadly and Abdelhadi’s music serves as a direct portal to distant lands.
