Mayara Band> Maroc
It was in 2006 that two friends, Farid from Agadir and Ayoub from Casablanca came up with the idea of starting a Gnawa music band. Very quickly their passion for world music drove them to creating a unique band in the form of: Mayara Fusion. The first compositions of this band without complexes liberated the sonority of the two founders chunking together jazz, funk, rai, ragga, dub or flamenco against Gnawa music. In 2007 the band decided to compete on the stage of Generation Mawazine and resoundingly won first prize. One year later this band pulled off a second success at Tremplin L’Boulevard finishing the contest with the title of best Fusion
band. With this dual victory to their credit the six musicians shut themselves up in a studio to record three titles. At the time of their release in 2009, «Haly Gnaoui», «3El Mektab» and «3lash» were broadcast
on all Moroccan radio stations thereby lending the band a gateway to the major local festivals.
