Jannis Stürtz

“I kept on traveling to Morocco trying to find info about the artist, which did not end up being fruitful during the first couple of trips,” Stürtz mentions. “What kept me going was the fact that over the course of the next years I kept on finding different records by Fadoul… they all had [a] raw sound aesthetic… energetic performances, a mighty voice and a very lively atmosphere that was preserved in the recordings.”

Al Zman Saib

Al Zman Saib is a collection of 8 songs put together by Jakarta Records & Habibi Funk Records after finding Fadoul’s cover of “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag” in a hole-in-the-wall Casablanca electronics shop. It took Stürtz three years to find the singer’s family in order to secure the songs and permission to release this record.
