The rock band have collaborated with The Master Musicians of Joujouka to add a sense of ancient ritual and some depth beyond normal instrumentation to their 'End to the Lies' song.

Rockers have teamed up with a group of Moroccan world musicians for an exotic new track. Singer Perry Farrell, guitarist and drummer Stephen Perkins have recorded "End to the Lies" with the legendary The Master Musicians of Joujouka.

The 14 village musicians hail from the Ahl Srif mountain range of the southern Rif Mountains in northern Morocco, they are Sufi trance artists who use reed, pipe and percussion to create drones and complex rhythms. Late star Brian Jones recorded them in 1968 for his album "Brian Jones Presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka".

Farrell says, "We wanted to add a sense of ancient ritual and some depth beyond normal instrumentation, getting off the typical path that rock bands use." The band took producer Rich Costey and temporary bassist Dave Sitek to Joujouka to record the sounds.

He adds, "It was all recorded in the Master Musicians Madrassa (school house) which is out in the village of Joujouka near Morocco where they live. The drums were recorded in the kitchen and the rhiatas in the main room of the house."
