Essaouira Gnaoua World Music Festival

Every June the Essaouira Gnaoua and World Music Festival celebrates the music of the Gnaouas, the product of a mystic tradition with branches as widespread as Haitian Voodoo and Brazilian Candombl√©. Performers include the best local and international musicians of the genre. A picturesque port painted in blue and white, Essaouira is a travellers’ favourite and the perfect destination for a festival devoted to the feats of the Gnaouas, best known for their tasselled hats, which spin wildly as the musicians rock.
