Free Sufi Concert in Fez this weekend

The Hamadcha on a recent tour to Meknes

You are invited to a free performance of wonderful Sufi music this Saturday afternoon at 4 PM

The Hamadcha Brotherhood are one of the most popular of the Sufi Brotherhoods in Morocco, and while they are very strong in the areas around Fez, their popularity has spread internationally, with performances in Europe and the US.

Sufi music is vitally important in Moroccan culture – particularly in Fez. Anyone new to it will find this performance an ideal introduction, while those familiar with the Hamadcha will have the opportunity to enjoy their exuberant, uplifting style once again.

Prior to the concert there will be a brief explanation by musician and scholar Fredrick Calmes (pictured above), who also plays and sings with the group.

This concert is hosted by the American Language Center Fes as part of their ALIF program.

Who: ALIF & ALC students and members of the public
When: Saturday March 9 at 4 PM
Where: ALIF Riad, Batha or meet by Batha Fountain at 3.45 PM
Cost: Free
