Ahmed Amayno: Transmission of folklore to the eccentricity

His real name Ahmed Boulfra, Ahmed Amayno is a singer, composer and producer of Moroccan films. Born in Agadir in 1971, is a Berber Amazigh claimed by both his personality and through his art. Ahmed Amayno had a passion for the banjo in the late 80s, which he played for the holidays in his neighborhood, until he entered the National Conservatory of Agadir in 1994.

The music of Amayno is modern amazigh music. Influenced by the art of Rouaiss, Amayno seeks to renew the Berber melodies through the addition of the Banjo; the instrument originated in Black Africa was transported to the United States with slaves. The banjo was updated in the 1920s, taking the form of a 4-string instrument to accompany the brass in the Jazz Dixie.

From the 1940s, the 5-string banjo is back with the Scots-Irish music and American country. This short historical remind us of the originality or the need for such an instrument in Berber music. Ahmed Amayno founded his first band in 2006, a formation of two synthesizers, the Ribab and the Loutar, traditional string instruments, electric guitar, bass, drums, a fell, a darbuka, drums acoustic and finally our famous banjo...

Today the Moroccan Festivals snapped Amayno. During the Festival of Amazigh culture of Fes, the festival Asays, Dchaira, Timitar Tifaouine, all appointments of pure Berber music, the group Amayo represents the key of freshness and the bridge between the Amazigh culture, modern music, and join the most ancient instruments like the banjo, which is there as a reminder of the deep roots of this style of African music which is the Amazigh music.
