The Higlights of Morocco will make you experience the rich cultural life in Morocco, with a focus on music and dance. You will travel the Middle Atlas Mountains, where you may see how the famous lotar (Berber guitar) is made and the legend who played it so perfectly lived (Mohammed Rouicha). Go down south to the edge of the Sahara and experience Gnaoua desert music as you sit around the campfire and under the stars or you visit a Gnawa family. After this, you will continue to Fes, the imperial city, and the beautiful lake of Ben el Ouidane in the High Atlas Mountain. Then last but not least, Marrakech, the Berber capital. On the famous Jemaa el-Fna square, you can watch the snake charmers and drum players!
If you come in June, you can visit the famous Gnaoua music festival, but on other times this town also is a come and go of musicians and artists. Jimi Hendrix lived here for a while in the seventies, and still hippies and musicians are drawn to this inspiring little town.
