Gates of Ouarzazate by Tune In Crew published on 2014/04/22 14:29:09 +0000 Here is one very personal track along the way. We started the journey that is this song on the area of Jamaica, a central place to our musical background, but slowly realized we were, in truth, drifting and digging deeper into our own origins. While a driving Reggae soul is still to be heard, the desert of North Africa took over with all its strength, bringing its singular wind, its oasis, its caravans of nomads proudly marching, its goats and sheeps, and most certainly, its mesmerizing magic! We chose to name it after the city of Ouarzazate, in Morocco, for its meaning of the "silent city", its stance as "the door of the desert", and also, why not, for its famous cinematic imagination. Question is, which way will you choose to use the gates, will you enter the city, will you climb the Atlas, or will you venture to the desert?..
