Gnaoua Festival a Tourism Boost

Gnaoua Musicians reach new heights in Essaouira
At a time of low tourist numbers, the Moroccan authorities must be encouraged by the international coverage of the Gnaoua Music Festival in Essaouira. Even that stately old auntie, the BBC has given it a splash, including the fabulous photo (thanks BBC) above.

The final day of the festival is tomorrow and hopefully the organisers will have reached their estimated audience of 200,000.
