KICK OFF THE SUMMER WITH MUSIC ON THE BEACH IN MOROCCO!
GNAOUA FESTIVAL JUNE 2010

The Gnaouas are descendants from the black brotherhoods of slaves that were taken from Mali, Guinea, and Ghana. Originally, their purpose was to serve as guards to Morocco’s sultans, however, their role gradually changed from guards to that of ‘musical doctors’ or those who heal the soul.

The Gnaoua Festival of Essaouira hosts famous musicians of all genres jazz, blues, reggae, rock and hip-hop who participate each year by exchanging and mixing their own music with Gnaoua music, creating one of the largest public festivals in Morocco as well as one of the best and most exciting jam sessions.

It is now celebrating its 11th Edition with over 500,000 festival goers. The city of Essaouira comes alive with the hums, beats, and dancing of thousands of music lovers uniting under one sky.  The Gnaoua Festival offers 10 concert sites ON THE BEACH from which everyone can choose according to their taste, 10 different but complementary programs forming the details of a unique puzzle, that of a pioneering and cosmopolitan festival!
