VITA LOFT: master musicians of jajouka: feb 18th

on february 18th we begin the VITA LOFT series with a rare opportunity to raise a glass with the master musicians of jajouka from morocco. caffe vita has partnered once again with one pot to bring more thoughtful-provocative-conversation-and-dining to seattle. coffee culture has always included the heated exchange of progressive ideas – on that bedrock we have built this series. In the coming months expect dinners with authors stephen rinella, paul collins, luis alberto urrea, nina plank, tom standage, a short list of leading songwriters, and we are working on getting jane and michael stern and marco pierre white back for a return visit.

mick jagger summed up the master musicians of jajouka rather succinctly "one of the most musically inspiring groups still left on the planet". i will be cooking all day with the eight famed moroccan master musicians – and the night will include much music, a feast, and a conversation with bachir attar, the leader of the master musicians. this dinner is a fundraiser – all proceeds go directly to the mmj in their effort to cross the u.s. and share the ancient music of the blue djebala foothills of northern morocco.

dinner and fun. $70/person. wine provided.
location: Vita Loft (gorgeous soaring loft replete with a stage and a wood fired oven)
