Notes

Recorded in June 1994 and August 1995.

Moroccan Sufis practice trances rites which outsiders are rarely able to witness. James Irsay, an intrepid musical explorer, was granted the rare permission to attend and record these ceremonies. Irsay captured their rites by carrying his microphone through the frenzied courtyards, creating a novel shifting sonic perspective.
