A concert film unlike any other, Trances presents footage of Nass El Ghiwane, known as the Rolling Stones of Africa, whose performances combined music, poetry, and theater. “We eavesdrop on the group, whose troubadour style has won them a large and rapturous following in their home country of Morocco. The debt owed to the musical traditions of their faith and land is freely acknowledged, and vividly brought to mind by the trance-like state their compelling, percussive music induces in their fans.” – Time Out London
