Gnawledge – Granada Doaba

August 5, 2009

This is a cool and interesting collaboration between Fulbright scholar Canyon Cody and rapper/producer Gnotes, under the guidance of elder musicians, flamenco guitarist Juan Miguel Carmona and Arabic oud player Uzman Almerabet. The album is packed with breaks, guitars, violins, flutes, and samples, amongst a few other ethnic instruments.

From www.gnawledge.com/granadadoaba/
“Granada Doaba explores the broad roots and divergent branches of flamenco hip-hop. Inspired by the religious convivencia of Al-Andalus, the album features 16 musicians from around the world who all currently live in Granada, Spain.”

“Gnawledge is a praxis hip-hop collaboration between Fulbright scholar Canyon Cody and rapper/producer Gnotes. Composers of modern electronic riddims rooted in traditional music, Gnawledge promotes participatory education through sample-based hip-hop.”

The full album is available at their website and at the link below.

Please download, copy + share. Don’t forget to remix.”
