"Three names, three cultures, three continents, three different concepts of time and timing -- this is the essence of this trio. This is what we have to bring together." -- Peter Brötzmann, Wuppertal, April 1st, 2019.

With these words, Peter Brötzmann, one of the great figures in the development of a unique European approach to free improvisation since the '60s, announced his return to the AngelicA festival in 2019. A trio featuring Hamid Drake -- one of the best living drummers and guembri player Maalem Mokhtar Gania, last representative of a legendary line of Gnawa music masters, brother of Maalem Mahmoud Gania, long-time Brotzmann collaborator who died prematurely. The trio documented in this CD thrilled and surprised the attending audience with their great energy and magnetism. The music played here it's further proof that Brötzmann at the age of 78 has nothing to envy to his younger self of 50 years ago, at the beginning of his career.
