The ZBS Radio Hour: Moon Over Morocco Part 3

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 30 January, 2010

Join us this and every Saturday for the ZBS Radio Hour — audio adventure at its best from ZBS Foundation — at 11am repeated at 7pm SLT (Sat 7pm & Sun 3am GMT)*. To listen, come to our listening party at Radio Riel HQ in Edison Hypatia, or tune in at home on Radio Riel’s Main Stream.

This week on the ZBS Radio Hour, we present the third episode of Moon Over Morocco — a classic adventure serial in ten hour-long episodes — part Casablanca, part Arabian Nights. This week, Jack and his friends head south to a Berber music festival in the mountains — and strange things begin to happen. There is some gorgeous Moroccan music recorded live in this week’s episode.

The environments in Moon Over Morocco were recorded by author “Meatball” Fulton while traveling around that country. You’ll hear the Medina, the Casbah, the music of the snake charmers, the lonely call to prayer from the minaret of the mosque, the dogs of Tangier as the moon becomes full, the music of the desert tribes recorded in the Sahara and Berber music recorded at festivals in the Grand Atlas and Rif Mountains. Music was recorded by Paul Bowles.

Featuring Robert Lesser as Kasbah Kelly, Dave Adams as the pianist Mojo Sam and Taurean Blacque as the storyteller Mustafa.

If you enjoy Moon Over Morocco, you can obtain it, and many other recordings, on CD or as mp3 downloads from the web site.

*A note on timing: The show will begin after the end of the track playing at the top of the hour (we like to complete pieces of music). As a result the programme may start up to a few minutes after the hour.
