Bazoga, a musical collaboration between Moroccan art students and brothers Salim and Tayeb Bayri (aka dimmiT!!!) , features a hyper electronic mash of Moroccan trance darbeats, darija poetry, and other samplings found online.
“Bazoga is a chance to rediscover the music which always surrounded us [in Morocco], allowing us to better understand it,” says Tayeb. “The music of our parent’s generation, chaabi, the music of the Middle Atlas, doukkala …” Salim adds, “…if you asked us to choose where we actually started, I would have to say Casablanca, because it’s the one place that we both share. It represents a kind of ‘mixture before departure’, an expression of some energy that, sooner or later, would have to come out.”
“Bazoga is: living in foreign countries + the idea of a meeting + the natural awkwardness of our language + the autobiographical childhood elements + the violence of all this mixed together.”
