I was blessed to attend Andalous Atlantique festival couple times. In a BEAUTIFUL Essaouira, one of the “Blue Cities” in Morocco to the shore of the Pacific…Portuguese, Roman, British, Muslim, Jews…you can see and feel all in this place…
It feels like time travel just being there, the beautiful beaches and the old medina…and then ad this festival that brings in Jews and Arabs from around Morocco and the World. There are of course all kinds from around the world yet the peaceful, respectful, joyful collaborations of Jewish and Muslim musicians makes it VERY special !!!
Due to the “surreal Era” most all festivals in Morocco has not woken up yet, however, last week I was aware that the Andalous Atlantique Festival is ON Oct 27-30/2022
I got so excited! I’m creating this special tour for the few special people, Are you one of them?
We will enjoy our stay in Essaouira for the whole festival, after we toured southern, out of the way , unique places in Morocco: Including Tazenakht- The center of carpet weaving in Morocco. Tilaouin- Safron center of Morocco and the only area in the world where Argan trees grow…
