Gnaoua Music Festival Morocco & Cuba Jam Session #1
You had to see it to believe it!
Gnaoua Music Festival Essaouira, Morocco, June 20-23, 2019
The 2019 Gnaoua Music Festival held in Essaouira, Morocco, showcased many of the best artists performing traditional Gnaoua music, who also performed cross-collaboration with artists from around the world. International artists included Tinariwen and Susheela Raman. The festival began with a procession of the performing artists from one side of the Medina to the other side. This year the parade started at Bab Doukkala and worked itself through wall-to-wall people to the gate on the opposite side, Bab El Menzah. The 2019 festival marked 22 years for the annual event! The parade of the artists was a highlight by itself! Enjoy!

Shukraan 🙏 Hassan Laarousi and Said Bunouno. We are thankful for your friendship. It is a privilege to spend time with you listening to the Guembri and watch the magic as the new Guembri is born. We learned so much and hope to spend more time at “Yellow Workshop” during our time in Essaouira. BTW the nightly tanjine dinners were fabulous! 🙏
