This is a music festival based on the traditions of Gnaoua music. Gnaoua music is a combination of acrobatic dancing as well as music. Its origins lie in a unique mixture of Berber, African and Arabic songs, religious rites and dance.
The festival has grown to include musicians from all over the world. Venues are dotted all around the pretty coastal town of Essaouira.
