After an edition in 2018 without concerts (because of the lack of funding), we propose, again, to the groups of the region an open stage on Sunday 31st, so they can show their musics, traditional, contemporary or both. According to the call for applications, musicians from Tighmert, Guelmim, Sidi Ifni... will play from 17h at place Al-Khemis (Laabid Square):

This day would not be possible without the support and co-organization of Tribal Dynamo and Sud Pixel. In parallel, they also organize a festival "For the Love of Desert" with Hoba Hoba Spirit (among others) and which will also take place in Tighmert between 5 and 7 April, in the garden Chebri Med Najib (in front of the Hassanie House.

From April 7th to 14th we will welcome students from the National Institute of Fine Arts of Tetouan (INBA) and National School of Arts of Paris-Cergy (ENSAPC). For a week, they will work on several aspects of the oasis and its surroundings. On the 17th of April they will present their researches at Le 18 Marrakech.
