"Sukitoa O Namau’s debut EP “Nari” plunges the listener into the artist’s vast collection of field recordings from and around Meknès, Morocco. While side B is a continuous sound piece, an extended journey through the richness of everyday life, including the sounds of marketplaces, remote villages or informal singing sessions, Side A masterfully sets these elements in compositions that no longer allow for a disinterested listen.

Ominous beats set the tone for four pieces permeated with analog crackling, over which incongruent fragments intertwine: an incomprehensible scream, the words of a dog trainer who wishes to imprint obedience through sound, the trance-inducing rhythm of a traditional percussive piece. Just as the album’s cover picture imposes itself again and again as a question to the looking eye, “Nari” celebrates the victory of the world over the senses, while also propagating its own spectral reality."
