Established in 1971, Nass el-Ghiwane is a legendary musical group that transformed the Moroccan music scene in the last decades of the 20th century. The charismatic founding member Larbi Batma (1948-1997) through his lyrics brought to light Moroccan folklore and obscure poetry. His autobiographical narrative, Al-ra??l, blurs the boundaries between fact and fiction and deals with social issues that plagued post-independence Morocco. Providing a reading of Al-ra??l, this book is the first in English examining the work of Nass el-Ghiwane, the emergence of al-?ghniya al-Gh?waniya as a musical genre and the social conditions that fostered its growth.
