Parties and celebrations
Several Moroccan events and celebrations take place in all Moroccan cities. These cultural and religious events that perfectly symbolize Moroccan traditions, are held during the famous Moussems and festivals. Don't miss the Tan-Tan festival, which is particularly renowned and has been listed as part of the cultural and intangible heritage of humanity since 2008, the Cherry Festival in Sefrou, the Moussem of Roses in Kalâat M'gouna or the Gnaoua festival in Essaouira. Celebrate the Moroccan way !
Gnaoua music takes us on a spiritual but also cultural journey. Being classified by UNESCO as World heritage since 2019, Gnawa music tells the story of slaves from sub-Saharan Africa. This ritual song with traditional music and dancing let you just go with the flow. The artists put on colourful costumes and sing to the beat of "Lguembri" and "Qraqeb", which are the two musical instruments of the Gnaouas. It’s not a surprise that great artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pat Metheny, Didier Lockwood or Marcus Miller have come to Morocco only to perform alongside the greatest musicians.
