"World Music" reveals one of the best kept secrets of music on
earth; the "Gnawa & World Music" festival, that takes place in
Morocco overlooking the Atlantic, and the traditional "Gnawa", a
symbolic and intense music reaching ecstasy.
Leonidas Antonopoulos talked to great musicians such as Yussu N Dour and experiences the excitement of a festival that turns the picturesque port of Essaouira into an island feast of multinational musical meetings between Gnawa Moroccan musicians and international artists like the Armenian percussionist Arto Touncboyaciyan, the Egyptian composer Fati Salama and the duet of Elika from Sweeden and Solo from Senegal.ir
