Hello everyone this is coming soon (21st sept, ltd vinyl + digital, on Border Community). Pre-order now from Norman Records>> https://www.normanrecords.com/records/172513-james-holden-maalem-houssam-guinia-three-live-takes Story goes like this: almost exactly 2 years ago Maalem Houssam Gania, the youngest son of Maalem Mahmoud Gania, and his band came to play a concert with me for the Barbican Centre at LSO St Luke's. The day before they came to my studio to rehearse/record, we got 3 good ones recorded. My favourite is the version of 'Pass Through The Fire' (from the Animal Spirits LP) which was inspired by gnawa in the first place, so to have Houssam spot its similarity to 'Bouri Bouri Manadabo' and weave the two together felt really special, something coming full circle. And Houssam, though thrust into the spotlight at a young age by the passing of his father, is a phenomenal player - the solidity of his rhythm puts him up there with the best. I feel lucky to get to play with this band, I hope you all enjoy it. Finally, they're playing at the Sage Gateshead soon, supporting Terry & Gyan Riley (!) - info here: TERRY RILEY & GYAN RILEY plus Maâlem Houssam Gania. (Spycam footage by Camille Blake)
