Well…f’sho many of us already dig dubstep, grime, and nu cumbia.. but GB wants to be all over the place..and we couldn’t be more grateful without the artistic exploration and musical expantion and Boom-bap flamenco and Mo’rockin breakbeats from Gnawledge or the eclectic sound from OJOS DE BRUJO, or the awesomeness of CALIMA.
Featuring live instrumentation from 16 local Andalusian musicians, Granada Doaba was produced by Gnotes as part of ethnomusicologist Canyon Cody’s Fulbright grant.

Gnawledge – La Senda Del Abuelo by granadadoaba
Funded by a Fulbright grant, Granada Doaba was inspired by the musical history of immigration through southern Spain. Directed by ethnomusicologist Canyon Cody and produced by underground rapper Gnotes, the album features 16 musicians from around the world who are all currently living in Granada (Spain). Rooted in flamenco and Arab music, Granada Doaba explores Andalusia’s diverse history of musical fusion, with influences coming from India, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and the USA.
If you like OJOS DE BRUJO, then you’ll love Calima..
