“…The musicians bridge the gap between now and then, us and them, high and low culture, reflecting a fusion of Moroccan craftsmanship and contemporary art and performance.” —Los Angeles County Museum Of Art
Photographer, designer and filmmaker Hassan Hajjaj uses the language of fashion photography to produce portraits of figures dressed in colorful North African fabrics with luxury brand clothes and shoes. For his L.A. appearance, Hajjaj will premiere the first ever live musical presentation of his video installation, My Rock Stars. The selected “rock stars” include Afrikan Boy, a grime MC originally from Nigeria now based in London; contemporary African acoustic jazz/folk/soul singer-songwriter Bumi; artists, musicians and sisters Abimaro & Lakwena; Marques Toliver, a songwriter, producer, violinist and vocalist from Daytona Beach, FL; and Simo Lagnawi, a Moroccan berber now settled in the UK who is steeped in the Gnawa trance music of North Africa.
