PASSING CLOUDS LIVE AT THE HIVE
lilas. Nights of Gnawa �A lila is an all-night community gathering with Gnawa spiritual music that involves a sacrifice of some kind—a rooster, sheep, or even a cow—and a whole order of sections of songs that have call-and-response singing and in which participants go into a trance. Each city has its own order of songs for a lila. Once it gets into the sacred part of the music there are seven colors, each of which has its own repertoire of songs that deal with a certain element or spirit. It's community music, led by a maalem who makes sure not to skip any songs that are important to specific people within
