I met Asmâa Hamzaoui & Bnat Timbouktou this week. And I’ve never ever been more in awe of musicians.
Asmâa is the first woman, ever, everywhere to play the guembri. And when you see her on stage. And off stage. You understand why she is on one. 1. She was destined to be on some badass behavior with her talent and skills. She is amazing. The call and response is what brings me ecstasy tho. The whole clique is on some un-explainable must-experience vibe. NOTHING brings me more joy than to hang w young, talented women, see them having a good time while shittin on patriarchal traditions.
