Available on vinyl for the very first time: the 1992 album „Apocalypse Across The Sky“ by the legendary Master Musicians Of Jajouka. Produced by Bill Laswell, remastered for vinyl by Helmut Erler at D&M Berlin and according to Songlines one of the essential recordings of the ensemble. No matter if you consider the Master Musicians Of Jajouka a “4,000 year-old rock‘n‘roll band” (William S. Burroughs) or even „6,000 years old“ (Ornette Coleman) – without doubt, the music of the ensemble in all its incarnations over the centuries is deeply rooted in Sufi mysticism, paganism and the cult of the goat-god Boujeloud. According to a myth, many centuries ago Boujeloud appeared to a shepherd called Attar, an ancestor of today‘s ensemble leader Bachir Attar, and till today every year at the end of Ramadan a fire in honour of the goat-god is ignited. This pagan root aside, the music performed in several hour long rituals on traditional instruments like tebel and tariyya (drums), ghaita (a woodwind instrument), lira (flute) and gimbri (stringed instrument) reveals hypnotic, trance-inducing qualities and is considered to have magical and healing properties.
