By combining Western, Arabic and African influences and crossing cultural and musical boundaries, Gabacho Maroc have developed their own flair, using Afrojazz as the stock in a stew that's spiked with ingredients from Morocco, Africa and Gnawa culture. ​Set up by drummer Vincent Thomas in 2013, this eight-piece band features musicians of Moroccan, Algerian, and French origins. Highly creative, Gabacho Maroc is among the newest and most exciting 'fusion' bands of the moment.Their debut album BISSARA (Label Oued, 2014) is a work of multicultural and collaborative genius. Best African Jazz Band of the Year Nomination - AFRIMA 2015. On stage, with their cocktail of rhythms enriched by soft and captivating voices, and sweet saxophone licks, they communicate a joyful and positive feeling. Each concert ends up in a great party. ​In 2017, the band is walking with more than 200 concerts in world music & jazz festivals on four continents. Their new album “Tawassol” is to be released in 2018. Get ready!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
