Friday Night in Fez ~ A Musical Treat

A reminder that tomorrow (Friday March 17) at 8 PM, a musical treat is on offer at Riad Zany in the Fez Medina. The Majlis Trio, from France, will be performing a selection of their rich repertoire of traditional oriental music from Turkey, Greece, Syria, Egypt, Azerbaïdjan and Arab-Andalusian music from the Maghreb.

This is a rare chance to experience a wide range of music in a beautiful setting. Léo Fabre-Cartier (pictured left) and fellow musicians, Aline Haelberg (Pictured above - violin and alto)  and Thibaut Rocheron (percussion), from France will be giving their first concert in Morocco. They have appeared together many times in France as the Majlis Trio.

Leo says that because the music the Majlis Trio plays draws on very different styles, the points of rhythmic and melodic convergence mean that they are "accessible to people from different cultures".

If you are unsure of how to get to Riad Zany, then see the information below about where and when to meet a guide.


What: Concert by the Majlis Trio from France
When: Friday May 17 at 8 PM
