Fez Sacred Music Festival
If the term sacred music turns you off, think again. Artists from around the world flock to Morocco’s spiritual capital during the annual Fez Sacred Music Festival. The event features performances in a variety of styles, ranging from local Sufi chants to haunting gypsy songs from Spain – a romantic setting for a fine selection of devotional music.
The spread of the gypsy-inspired style is such that musicians from France to Rajasthan can find common ground – and they certainly do over the course of this event, with double bills and collaborative performances forming the majority of the programme.
To satisfy even the most demanding customer, organisers add annual spectaculars to each year’s programme. This has included Whirling Devishes from Iran. There are also concerts on the Bab Boujloud Square, children’s educational activities and the famous Sufi nights at Dar Tazi.
