Maalem Ismail RAHIL

Scène Moulay Hassan

Born in Casablanca in 1980, Ismail Rahil grew up in an Issawa and Gnaoua zaouia where his father, the Moqaddem Haj Mustapha Rahil, initiated him into the art of the trance while still a child. At 14, Rahil belonged to several local traditional music groups, and eventually turned to mastering the Guembri. Ismail began his path as a disciple of the departed great maâlem Hmida Boussou, then joined maâlem Abdennabi El Gadari in his troupe until he himself became maâlem and created his own troupe, "Oulad bambra". Since then, Ismail Rahil has gone on to tour the world. He performed for a year at Disneyland’s Epcot, where he broke all records with over 300 performances. Ismail Rahil has already recorded his first album Aicha, which was very popular with world music fans, and is currently preparing his next album, which will coincide with The Gnaoua and World Music Festival in Essaouira 2018.
