About Master Hassan Ben Jaafer and Innov Gnawa
Formed in the summer of 2014 by Moroccan expat Samir LanGus, Innov Gnawa draws on the considerable talents and expertise of Hassan Ben Jaafer, a Maâlem, or master gnawa musician, originally from Fes, Morocco. Under the guidance of Ben Jaafer, Innov has delved deep into the roots and rituals of gnawa music, and has played at the Lincoln Center, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bowl and the storied backroom of Brooklyn’s Barbès.
