In June 2014, Francis Dordor (inrockuptibles) wrote during the festival of Essaouira Gnaoua :
 » Listen yesterday Maâlem Soudani made ​​unnecessary any recourse to an ethnomusicologist lights : almost all of the rhythms found in blues, rhythm and blues and rock belonged to the Gnawa musical grammar for centuries before of the New World slave son will constitute a full directory on the banks of the Mississippi. « 

Thank you to the festival’s team « Suds à Arles « , who allowed us to realize this project, namely the meeting between Azouz Soudani and Adrian Burns, between Gnawa and Afro-american traditions, at the concert on July 17 2015 in Arles.
