Filling the city of Essouira with fusion sounds of jazz, pop, rock, soul and contemporary world music, Gnaoua awakens the sights and sounds of traditional North African culture, whilst simultaneously exhibiting future sounds of Gnawa culture.

Taking place in a location that feels like an adventure in itself, dance amongst the loud crowds in the lively public squares, navigate the labyrinth streets, see the variety of the market stalls, and absorb the views and energy of the pleasant beaches.

From walkabout performances to main stage gatherings, be a part of the growing trend of exciting African festivals, who both celebrate settlements pasts along with the present and approaching sounds to come.
