One of MoMo’s main instruments is the Moroccan Sintir, used in Gnawa music to bring audiences into Trance. It’s made of Camel skin, and has 3 gut strings. The sound is low, Bassy, velvety and rhythmically intoxicating speaking directly to the soul.
MoMo also plays many other Moroccan instruments like Karkaba(metal castanets), Bendir(stringed frame drum), Loutar(4-string Berber lute), as well as African drumming on Djembe and Cajon.
But it’s really MoMo’s guitar playing that is unique, with strong Moroccan influences rooted in heavy Jazz. Rock, Brazilian and Flamenco.
