Maâlem Abdenbi El Guedari> Casablanca
Maalem Abdenbi was born in Marrakech and currently lives in Casablanca. It was under the counsel of Maalem Boussou that Abdenbi continued to learn his art. Later becoming a master in his own right, today he is surrounded by his own Sidi Moumen bane and works on a regular basis in Italy where he recorded an album. His style makes reference to his origins, his music recalling tagnaouit traditions of both Casablanca and Marrakech. After leaving for Europe to disseminate Gnawa music and a regular guest at the Essaouira Festival, Maalem Abdenbi fused with great international artists like French guitarist Titi Robin in 2006. In 2009 he created an event by playing alongside Moroccan DJs Unes and Hak’x in a very electro repertory.
