Paul Bowles was an American expatriate composer and author who lived in Tangier. In 1959, he traveled around Morocco and recorded vocal and instrumental music of various tribes and indigenous populations. The Library of Congress issued a double album of those recordings in 1972. On April 1, Dust-to-Digital will release Music of Morocco, a box set featuring that original double album plus a pile of unreleased music from Bowles' 1959 recordings. Stream some excerpts below.
The box set comes with four CDs featuring over four hours of music. It's packaged in a silkscreened cigar box with foil stamping details. There's also a 120-page leatherette book featuring an introduction from Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo, Bowles' original field notes, and annotations by Philip Schuyler.
