By popular demand after a sold-out Mississippi Records show, RMI’s Cyrus Moussavi returns to our gallery to premiere the long-awaited Ouyala’s Wedding, co-directed with Hisham Mayet—Sublime Frequencies’ intimate look into a truly splendid Western Saharan nuptial celebration. The bride happens to be the daughter of a legendary musician family (Group Doueh), so this ceremony marks the most ‘musical’ in memory. From Morocco himself, Mayet had unprecedented access to this desert rite, respectfully bringing in the cameras to record details never before seen outside of the region. As to Moussavi, well, this trooper has trekked tens of thousands of miles across the globe in an effort to record ethnic musics before they are forever rendered extinct. Tonight he introduces some 40 mins of material from many remote locations, including sweet songs from Kurdistan, lovely lyricism from Kenya, stunning scenes from Mongolia, folk performances from Burma, and even finger-picking from Cambodia.*$9
