An Essaouira Riad at the heart of the Gnawa music festival.
Essaouira’s premier festival of music.
African music of high calibre has always been in the spotlight in Essaouira. Percussionist Doudou N’Diaye Rose, the great Youssou N’Dour, Senegalese singer and guitarist Baaba Maal are also part of those who signed in gold letters the success of the festival. And they are not alone. Jazz has strongly made its mark the highlights of the festival: Pat Metheny, Wayne Shorter in a merger with unprecedented Maâlem Kouyou, Brass Stefano di Battista, Paolo Fresu or Ibrahim Maalouf, pianists Omar Sosa, Boyan Z or Tigran Hamasyan. All these names recall the highlights of Gnawa World Music. Now in its 15th year, the festival will take place from June 21-24.
