The Master Musicians of Jajouka, led by Bachir Attar, at Mona

Hailed by Mick Jagger as ‘one of the most musically inspiring groups still left on the planet’, The Master Musicians of Jajouka, led by Bachir Attar, are coming to Mona.

Jajouka is an ancient mountain village in the northern hills of Morocco. Attar and his ensemble are the custodians of a unique, millennia-old

practice—one of the oldest musical traditions in the world.

The Musicians play a hypnotic mix of folk, ancient and contemporary pieces on traditional, locally made instruments. Passed down through generations and perfected over a lifetime, their mastery of sacred melodies and rhythms are revered throughout their native land. Global recognition came in 1968, when Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones recorded with the group; twenty years later, the Stones returned to Jajouka to record ‘Continental Drift’ (1989).

To mark the occasion of the Musicians’ debut Tasmanian performance, we are putting on an exclusive two-course Moroccan-themed feast in place of our usual Golden Hour dinner in the Mona Wine Bar—featuring a viewing of James Turrell’s sunset spectacular Amarna—on offer to concert ticketholders only.

Thursday 17 August, 7.30pm (5.30pm if you’re feasting)
Concert: $60/$45 + booking fee
Golden Hour and concert package $110/$90 + booking fee
