On tonight's New Sounds, Moroccan singer/musician Hassan Hakmoun performs live in the WNYC studios, and discusses his CD, The Gift. Hakmoun is one of the most gifted exponents of Moroccan, and especially, Gnawa music, a style of Moroccan devotional music performed in all-night healing-trance ceremonies. Since he arrived in the U.S. 15 years ago, Hakmoun has electrified it, joined it with rock and funk, and added Arabic, reggae, and Indian pop elements.
