Omar Afif's Gnawa Trance Fusion brings Moroccan Sufi praise music to a meeting with Afro-funk and blues. The Gnawa music is a north African repertoire of ancient spiritual Gnawa-Sufi songs and rhythms.

It is a well-preserved heritage ritual poetry with traditional music and dancing. The music is performed at lilas, entire communal nights of celebration dedicated to spirituality and healing, guided by a master musician. Many of the influnces that formed this music can be traced to sub-Saharan West Africa.
