Description


(Morocco)

Morocco in the spotlight!
In collaboration with Le Centre Culturel Marocain-Dar Al Maghrib.

Legendary, immortal : the Nass El Ghiwane phenomenon revolutionized Moroccan music in the 1970s. In tribute to this mythical band nicknamed “the Rolling Stones of Africa” by Martin Scorsese, the ambitious group Ahfad el Ghiwane will kick off this 8th edition of the Festival Orientalys.

The twins Mouhsin and Yassine Abouzine will sprinkle a new flavour over their masters’ ingenious repertory in an earthy sweetness, with dance treading energetically upon the nostalgia of memory. An enthusiastic moment, both retro and innovative, that boldly perpetuates the gifts of the past.

This is an opening show that will please fans of the genre along with neophytes seeking musical discoveries and committed lyrics. Ahfad El Ghiwane, in the course of a luminous evening, will convey a moment in the magic of the Ghiwanes. Long life to the legends of yesteryear!
