The Gnaoua Festival Tour arrives in Casablanca on June 16

Written by FDM

In Casablanca, the Gnaoua Festival Tour has chosen energy and fusion for 3 days of celebration. The Gnaoua maâlems of Casablanca will once again play the partition of sharing for new and daring fusions during three exceptional evenings.

On the menu, are folk, jazz, blues, African music, funk, Cuban music, Afro blues, Arab-Andalusian, Moroccan song, world music…
Seven maâlems, including a woman, and 15 talented international musicians show off their talents in all forms for moments of pure creation.

On the program, warm and powerful voices and a rich palette of instruments: guembri, rattlesnakes, piano, saxophone, guitar, percussion, keyboard, drums… a real musical rainbow!

The icing on the cake, golden female voices will enchant the people of Casablanca: the maâlema Asmaa Hamzaoui, the Senegalese Kya Loum, the guardian of the temple of Moroccan song Soukaina Fahsi and the spellbinding Hindi Zahra.

The Gnaoua Festival Tour in Casablanca is full of surprises and real musical nuggets: nine concerts including 4 fusions, 3 Gnaoua concerts, and 2 energy-filled concerts scheduled on June 16 and 17, at Esplanade Stade Mohammed V and on June 19 at the Touria & Abdelaziz Tazi Foundation (L’Uzine).

As a reminder, the Gnaoua Festival Tour, placed under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, is organized by A3 Communication in partnership with the Yerma Gnaoua Association and the support of public and private partners who are warmly thanked here for allowing this exceptional project to be part of the continuity: the Ministry of the Interior and the Directorate of Local Authorities, the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Communication, the Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT), CIH Bank, Oulmès Mineral Waters, Orange Morocco, We Casablanca, the Noufissa Pharma5 Foundation, Risma, and Accor Morocco, CDG Development, the Touria and Abdelaziz Tazi Foundation (l’Uzine) and AtlantaSanad Assurance.
