The place to get IZANZAREN is at the blog called Snap, Crackle and Pop. Comes heavily recommended. It's from the 60s and 70s, from the mountains of Morocco. The sound often reminds me of Tinariwen, though the jams are longer and the style is unique, the grooves are pretty similar. So I guess we could call it mountain blues. Heavy moroccan mountain blues banjo jams. And check out the pictures (!)
