Save the Last Trance for Me

After “Songbook Oberbilk”, a series of audio portraits for the public realm and smartphone, matthaei & konsorten followed the path of Moroccan migration through further European cities. On the trail of trance ritual, they find stories of personal success and social slander, Western yearning and Moroccan transformation. Finally in Morocco itself, old healing rites and African music traditions meet on the fast-paced market of world music. In an evening with performers from Casablanca and Brussels, that is simultaneously concert and lecture-performance, Matthaei draws the audience into a strange story of globetrotters and people possessed, of old wars and healing states of ecstasy.
