Fes Festival of World Sacred Music 2015 - Provisional Programme

The Fes Festival of World Sacred Music 2015 provisional programme is now available thanks to another superb translation by Helen Ranger

The programme has few surprises, but certainly some interesting variations. The intriguing "tea and music in private riads" sounds very interesting.

The opening night is titled Fes: in search of Africa and is described as a musical tale evoking the spirit of African heritage. It takes its inspiration from The History & Description of Africa written by Hassan Al Wazzan (c 1490-1550), known as Leo Africanus or Yuhanna Al Assad in Arabic, as well as highlighting the history of the Tijani Sufi brotherhood. 

Hussain Al Jasmi
The closing concert is sure to be a huge hit with the locals as it stars Hussain Al Jasmi from the UAE who has a large following throughout the Maghreb.

The African theme of the festival is well served by the inclusion of performers such as Tiken Jah Fakoly (pictured below).

Please note it is subject to change and changes will be updated as we receive them.
