Overview

Secret Museum of Mankind: Music of North Africa, 1925-1948

Music of North Africa from The Secret Museum of Mankind is a compilation of 24 songs and instrumental pieces from the Maghreb (the region of North Africa that is west of Egypt). All of the tracks, originally recorded during the first half of the 20th century, were initially circulated on fragile wax cylinders or brittle 78s. These crackling recordings have since been mastered and transferred onto CD by the staff at the Secret Museum. Particular cultural regions represented on this CD include Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Sudan, and Timbuktu. If all you've ever heard from North Africa are Moroccan talents -- such as Hassan Hakmoun and the Master Musicians of Jajouka -- then check out this wonderfully eclectic and inspiring collection of North African "roots" music.
