Urban Arts Ends on a Hip Hop High

The first edition of the Urban Arts Festival was organised by the French Institute in Fez. Today was the final day and concluded with a day-long Hip Hop contest

The event, held at the old Cinema Boujloud, started at 10 in the morning and was still going at 6 in the evening.

Contestants face each other off
But there can only be one winner

The audience, overwhelmingly Moroccan teenage boys, were wrapped up in the spectacle and, as one young Moroccan said, mistaking me for a French speaker, "Génial, formidable ... merveilleuse!" And I guess it was.

Congratulations to the French Institute for holding an event that made a young local audience very happy.
