The Wanton Bishops and Youness ignite the 2nd evening of the Timitar Festival 

Written by FDM

During the second evening of the Timitar Festival on July 5th, Amazigh rhythms and rai sounds were transmitted by the Moroccan singer Youness as well as a rock Lebanese band called The Wanton Bishops.

Rhythmic. Unique. And crazy. The Timitar Festival has put together an irresistible program for its second evening at the Place Al Amal.  The Amazigh music has resonated throughout Agadir for the first part of the evening. After the performance of Ahidous Izourane troupe, which has a remarkable sense of rhythm, Cherifa Kersit made her appearance. This famous singer who brings the Amazigh art to globalization, has once again captivated the audience with its exceptional voice and sense of poetry that, like the Chikhates of the Middle Atlas, beautifully tale everyday life.

Along came the crazy Lebanese band: The Wanton Bishops. Their supercharged rock has unleashed the crowd who were attracted by the overflowing energy of this band. Their vocalist being Nader Mansour, he influences their music with a particular mix of psyche rock, traditional oriental music and electro.

Another exceptional moment: the show with the Moroccan singer Youness who captivated the audience with his “mix of soul-rai and French songs”, as he likes to define it. In short, a memorable evening infused with electro mix.Two DJs ignited the stage with French VJ Tekyes and Tunisian DJ Missy Ness. The latter has managed to impose herself in this masculine world and produces with finesse contemporary sounds such as Hip Hop, Drum’n Bass or BreakBeats.

An exceptional evening worth the trip and carried out by the rest of the artists who have set the Al Amal Square on fire.
