Ensemble Fanaa is the meeting point between a myriad of musical styles in the African American, North African and Middle Eastern traditions. Daro Behroozi, John Murchison and Dan Kurfirst utilize their wide experience in to explore the possibilities of applying approaches learned from the traditions of African American improvisation to an emerging global musical culture. This enables them to blend and shift between and outside of a diverse range of music making practices as they continue to develop a new rhythmic, melodic, harmonic, and sonic vocabulary sometimes characterized by polyrhythmic drones, chromaqamatic extemporizations, and arrhythmic grooves. Their sound is often centered around the use of the Gimbri, a bass-register instrument from Morocco that is primarily used in traditional Moroccan Healing/Trance music (Gnawa).
