Biography

Bachir Attar is the leader of Master Musicians of Jajouka, who since 1990 have sometimes recorded under the name The Master Musicians Of Jajouka Feat. Bachir Attar. Attar’s father, Hadj Abdesalam Attar, led the group at the time of their groundbreaking albums produced by Brian Jones and Joel Rubiner in the early 1970s. The group recorded under the shorter name Master Musicians of Jajouka on soundtracks for films including The Cell, appearances with the Rolling Stones on Steel Wheels, the second album of the group from 1974 produced by Rubiner, and the 1995 reissue of the group’s first album, Brian Jones Presents The Pipes of Pan at Jajouka. Bachir Attar carries on his father’s Attar family traditions with a new generation of “master musicians” descended from members of his father’s group.

He has recorded a couple of solo albums in addition to his work with Master Musicians of Jajouka. Attar was a guest performer on Nicky Skopelitis’s 1993 album, Ekstasis. Attar’s manager and official photographer during his group’s 1990s recording career was his wife, Cherie Nutting, whom he had married in 1989. The two parted in 1996, but she was managing him and his band again by the mid-2000s.
