Ali Alaoui
Born in 1967, in Fez, the cultural and sacred city of Morocco, Ali Alaoui has practised the art of percussion since childhood. At the age of 19, he joined the principal orchestra in Fez, then taught at the Casablanca Conservatoire while playing with the Moroccan National Orchestra as solo percussionist. In his own country, as in the rest of the world, he always seized every opportunity to share music with musicians of every region and origin, playing folk, popular, classical and religious music as well as classical compositions by contemporary artists. His many-sided activities have made him a teacher without frontiers. This Pack includes 2 DVDs and a book:

* A documentary film : "Ali's bet"  shot in Morocco takes us into the world of classical, or traditional and popular music. The film follows a series of meetings with the Aissawa brotherhood and trance music, the musicians of the Conservatoire of Arabic-Andalusian Music of Fez, the principal orchestra of the Radio Télévision de Fès (RTM) conducted by Azedine Montassere and a reunion with one of the inventors of Moroccan popular music : Mohamed Laaroussi.
