The Sentir (sometimes called Gimbri) is an amazing Moroccon bass instrument used in Gnawa music. It has 3 gut strings, a long neck and a one piece wood body covered with camel skin. The sentir produces a rich, deep bass tone that gets percussive when the player hits the top of the skin like a drum.
This is true drum & bass music. Youseff is the artist and is truly a gifted sentir master.
This recording is of Youseff El Mistouri playing sentir and singing beautiful songs of the gnawa.
