Obscure English band, world music and indoprog precursor in his country, three members of the band are better known as personal of "Mighty baby", a legendary English underground folk-rock band. Habibiyya released this unique album in 1972, inspired by a trip to Morocco which served as a spiritual revelation. Their music is a fine and well balanced blend of western and eastern influences, revealing the Sufi roots of the band. Deeply influenced by Sufi mysticism, the band members were practicing meditation before playing. Their musical style is simple and authentic with an esoteric vibration which reminds of the German band "Between", with a peculiar Moroccan flavour inherited from traditional music. This is an accomplished early world fusion with a trance/transcendental dimension.
