Recorded at the Academia Arabesca, The Medina

`Aîssâoua Sûfî Ceremony, the first of three volumes
in this series recorded in Morocco, captures the public
performance of `Aîssâoua rituals, called hadra.
`Aîssâoua is the brotherhood comprised of followers of
one of Morocco's most well-known and highly regarded
spiritual leaders, Shaykh 'Abd Allâh Sîdî Muhammad
Ben 'Aîsa as-Sufiâni al-Mukhtârî (870/1465-933/1526).
`Aîssâoua performances work on several levels: for
members of the brotherhood, they form part of their
spiritual training; for ceremony sponsors they serve to
bless the event; and for the individual pilgrim or
participant, the ritual provides access to the tangible
baraka (blessing) of the Shaykh (Arabic Sheikh), which
can be activated for purposes of healing and guidance.
The trance possession which occurs during the hadra is
the most dramatic manifestation of this therapeutic
function of the performance. The baraka which effects
these transformations is activated and brought into the
hadra by means of recitations, singing and music.
Members of an `Aîssâoua team in Marrakesh, Morocco. It
features chanting, a variety of percussion, including tbîlât
(pair of small bowl-shaped clay drums played with sticks),
ta`rîja (small vase-shaped clay drum), târ (large wooden
frame drum with cymbals), bendîr (round wooden frame drum
with resonant gut strings), tbel (large wooden barrel-drum
played with sticks), as well as ghaita (a cone-shaped
double reed instrument in the oboe family).
