The voices of the musicians seamlessly blend in with the plucking strings of the guembri, the tinny chinks of the qraqeb, and the heartbeat-like pounding of the ganga.The music builds and builds. Crescendo. And you’re transported to an altered state of consciousness. It’s nirvanic. It’s jadba.
Gnawa Jadba Rose
Inspired by the nirvana-like state, jadba, that participants reach during a Lila, the artwork for Gnawa Jadba is an abstraction of the dancer being transported into trance through the sweeping movements of Gnawa music.
The lightweight Jadba Rose print features colorful patterns against a white backdrop in blue, pink, mustard yellow, mint, blush, sage green, grey, and black, some colors integral to Gnawa culture.
