Under the patronage of King Mohammed VI, the 18th edition of the Mawazine-Rhythms of the World Festival will host one of the most recognized bands in Us for the past 20 years. The mythical crew will perform exclusively on the stage OLM on Tuesday, June 25!
Born from the association of three young Californian fans of hip-hop (Will.i.Am, Apl of Ap and Taboo), Black Eyed Peas are a successful group who has sky rocking sales figures: more than 35 millions of albums and 21 million singles sold in less than 15 years. Using rock, pop, funk or salsa sounds, the band has developed a unique style by offering an alternative to classic west coast rap.
In the early 1990s, after notable collaborations with Macy Gray, Mos Def, De La Soul and Wyclef Jean, singer Fergie joined the original trio. An arrival that was met with success, because Elephunk (2003), the third album, was a hit with the first single Where Is The Love? featuring Justin Timberlake.
After a break in 2011, Black Eyed Peas return to the forefront of the scene in 2015 with a reformation with David Guetta at the Coachella festival. In 2017, the group followed up with a world tour and a return to hip-hop origins the following year, with the opus Masters Of The Sun Vol 1 which matches the hip-hop and soul of the group.
