Fused Music from the Morroccon Desert

Alchemy, a new philanthropic festival in Saharan Morocco, April 2013, provide a playlist driven by their first performers, of desert-funk-rock for tonight's Free Lab Radio, including Om, Secret Chiefs, Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo and The Master Musicians of Bukkake.

This four day festival in the Morroccon desert kicks off in just a few weeks and is original in that the project encourages exclusive collaborations with musicians from the Saharan region.

Alchemy at Zahar is the baby of Basile Marrero, director, who has persuaded the Sonic Youth guitarist to perform a collaborative set of original and improvised work with Bachir Attar and then with players from The Master Musicians of Jajouka, a Saharan band.

Listen live on Saturday night, 11-midnight on 104.4FM or
