The Timitar festival kicked off, last night, with a grand opening night. With performances by Najat Atabou, the “Atlas lioness” as we like to call her, Ahidous Tazwit, Rais Said Outajatit, Rabab Fusion, and DJ Ali and VJ Tekyes all of which have delivered a magical show.

The kickoff of the 16th edition of the Timitar Festival, Signs & Cultures was given on Wednesday, July 3. Two stages had captured the public’s attention: the Amal stage and the Verdure theater. The latter has lived moments with the performance of “The Shahata Brothers”. This Lebanese group has always been immersed in the musical universe and delighted the audience with its melodies and repertoire. Other highlights followed, with the performances of Sallam Yamdah Mnat Aichata, Ait Laati, and the Italian singer Eugenio Bennato.

Meanwhile, at the stage Al Amal, the large audience would have missed for nothing in the world the singing act of Najat Atabou. The singer kept her audience in suspense for more than an hour, chaining her great successes creating real alchemy with the audience.

The evening ended with Rabab fusion. This group from Agadir set the stage on fire thanks to its musical tunes inspired from the Amazigh repertoire.

The first night of Timitar has announced the time of a festival that is positioned in the top 25 best festivals in the world through its programming and free shows. The party continues tonight with other headliners and rhythms from here and around the world.
