It's also a reference to Lala Mimouna, a Gnawa saint often invoked by this brotherhood. This song is inspired by his journey in Morocco. Moreover, it's a tribute to the Gnawas. Their rhythms are close to the trance musics of Bahia-Brasil . Street noises in Merrakesh, snake charmers and water carriers join in with instruments like "gambri", karkabous and bendir as well as Berber vocals. It's a message of love.

Rykiel: keyboards Yang Su-Min: vocals Richard Bernet: estraj Koko Améziane: bass drum, frame drum, Indian brushes Kim-Poh, the divine Malaysian-Chinese flutist. 'He is my friend. We toured around the world for almost eight years. Through his multi-ethnic Asian background, Kim-Poh introduced me to the diversity of echoes in the Malaysian jungle. With the sound of his flute, he took me into the world of the Chinese songs of meditation. He introduced Yang Su- Mei, a Chinese opera singer who agreed to collaborate on this piece. The sound of "estrad" (Indian violin), wonderfully interpreted by Richard Bernet, brings a message of peace.'
