The Fez Hamadcha in Great Form - Photo Essay

The Fez Hamadcha Sufi Brotherhood relaxing pre-ceremony in Riad Zany 
Last night saw some superb Sufi action in the Fez Medina with the Hamadcha Tariqa performing at Riad Zany. The event was attended by a large number of local Fez residents as well as visitors to the Medina. The evening was filmed by CNN for a future programme. Here are some images from the ceremony.
