“A collective of musician friends are invited to present special works and exclusive happenings and collaborations with artists from Morocco and the Sahara Region”.
Many bands will perform more than once during the four days of concerts, under one form or another. Like Secret Chiefs 3 who will play three different – full length sets on three days for nearly four hours of SC3! The Master Musicians of Bukkake will play their Totem trilogy for the first time in its entirety as one of the headliners for nearly two hours of Psychedelia. They will also play a brand new set on another night. The Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar (not to be confused with Joujouka – another totally different group) will play one set as headliners and another with Sonic Youth Guitarist Lee Ranaldo.
Lee Ranaldo & Leah Singer will present “Sight Unseen”, a film / sound performance involving a screen and a strung guitar…
There will be more to unveil as we get close to the date…
Many Moroccan bands unknown to the International audience will catch you off guard for your listening pleasure.
A lot of special happenings and collaborations will also take place!
No sets will be under one hour, as it would really be a shame to invite such great artists so far from their homes to play just forty minutes.
The two concerts areas; the main stage at the Dune and the Acoustic Lounge/Tent, will never play at the same time, allowing the audience to not miss one single show if they want.
