Since June 21st, the city of Rabat resonated along with the sounds of scattered performances of all kinds celebrating its 18th edition of Mawazine Rhythms of the World Festival.

The international music festival continues to honor diverse musical cultures in its many stages with a cluster of artists coming from different parts of the world. Last night, June 23rd, was no exception.

Starting with the oriental scene in Nahda, the public enjoyed a lively performance by the “Queen of Stage”  of the Arabic music scene Myriam Fares. The OLM Souissi, on the other hand, hosted two concerts by major French artists: Big Flo & Oli followed by rapper Gims’s little brother, RnB singer Dadju.

On another side of the city, in the Mohammed V National Theater, the Lebanese alternative rock band Mashrou’Leila delivered an electric performance in front of a full house, composed of many young Moroccans but also of many students of foreigners, especially Americans.

Finally, the historical site of Chellah witnessed a holy performance by Turkish band She’Koyokh who performed the most beautiful songs drawn from an authentic Turkish musical heritage.
