The complementary term 'Moroccan Clash' is often used to describe Hoba Hoba Spirit, a blend of rock rage and hip hop verve boiling along in a cauldron of oriental music since 1998. This quintet from Casablanca is fighting against obscurantism in Arab society with sharp lyrics and popular chorus-­slogans that make them the spokespeople for the new generation of Moroccans in search of an identity. Their lyrics mix French, Arabic and English and their gnaouis-­influenced urban fusion sounds place them at the forefront of the North-­African contemporary music scene.
