The 16th edition of the Timitar, Signs and Culture Festival ended on a high note. Organized from July 3 to 6 in Agadir, this cultural event that honors Amazigh culture and other cultural expressions from Morocco and elsewhere has been a success from start to finish.

The fourth evening of Timitar was followed by a big audience, who came in large numbers to attend the concerts of their favorite artists. The evening started on a high note with the performance of the troupe Ahwach Asga Aoulouz. The typical dances of the region of Awlouz and the rhythmic songs by percussions captivated the audience.

The evening continued with the legendary band Wailers Feat. Originally from Jamaica, this group had accompanied Bob Marley in more than 250 concerts. The group led by Al Andersson delivered reggae vibes on Al Amal’s stage.

Réda Taliani’s turn on the stage. Welcomed by a wave of applause, the raï singer sang his famous songs including ‘Va bene’, ‘Nbghik sans pitié’ and other selected pieces that made his reputation.

The Fnair set fire to the stage and ensured a breathtaking show. The concert was worthy of the biggest international stages, and the public was thrilled, dancing and singing with the 3 members of the band.

The evening brought along a nice surprise to the public with the performance of Insoumises, a  duo of female Moroccan DJs. The two young Casablanca natives, carrying a message of tolerance, freedom, and respect for women, entertained the festival-goers on the best tunes. The last artist of this edition was none other than VJ Kalamour, a multidisciplinary artist who seduced the public with his offbeat artistic approach.

The Timitar Festival organized from July 3 to 6, has once again achieved a milestone : a series of shows, beautiful encounters, (re) discoveries of talent from around the world, and moments of emotions with a well-inspired program to the delight of festival-goers who are demanding of more.
