RABAT, MOROCCO

Good Health (Australia) - - Well Travelled -

This mega fest claims an at­ten­dance of 2.5 mil­lion, mak­ing it the big­gest of any African mu­sic event, and one of the world’s largest.

Spread over nine days and pre­sent­ing more than 1000 artists, with the sounds of Morocco with Black African beats and of­fer­ings from the rest of the world, plus a smat­ter­ing of su­per­stars.

Solo artists dom­i­nate the pro­gram rather than bands, and the big draw is the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence the spicy flavours of Is­lamic and sub-sa­ha­ran African mu­sic.

The 2017 pro­gram fea­tured Anoushka Shankar, Charles Az­navour, Amer­i­can rap­per Lau­ryn Hill, Bagh­dad’s Mo­hammed Al Salem and Syr­ian Hus­sein El Deek. fes­ti­val­mawazine.ma
