The title of this work is inspired by a gnawa ritual, Lila or Derdeba, an ecstasy and trance ritual achieved through music, dance and sacred precepts involved in this ancestral tradition. (…) This disc, neither representing nor seeking to illustrate the ritual of the gnawa people, brings in its womb this idea of ​​a certain cure through a hypnotic state that the music brings, both for its listeners and for its creators.
