Now 20 years old!
The Fes Festival of World Sacred Music, with HM King Mohammed VI as patron, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with the theme Conference of the Birds: Journey of Cultures. It has been twenty years of a musical, spiritual and artistic journey exploring the cultures and traditions of the world, revealed in ever greater depth through concerts, exhibitions, film screenings and debates.
Just as the last twenty years have been rich in artistic expression and intercultural encounters, the Spirit of Fes Foundation invites you to experience exceptional music this year, throughout the week of 13 to 21 June.
The seven continents are represented by superb artists, grand masters renowned for their art: from Europe, one of the greatest tenors of our time, Roberto Alagna, presents a show created specially for the Festival; in addition toTomatito, who works with Paco de Lucia at the top of his field of flamenco guitar. Representing Africa is an encounter between Youssou N’dour and Johnny Clegg in a tribute to Nelson Mandela; along with Rokia Traoré. From Asia is the prestigious Arab singer Kadim Al Sahir and Zakir Hussain, the most celebrated Indian tabla musician. Morocco is represented by a number of artists during the opening concert and also in an Arab-Jewish-Andalusian evening showcasing the greatest Moroccan artists both Muslim and Jewish, presenting their magnificently rich cultural heritage. Luzmila Carpio from Bolivia represents South America, and Buddy Guy from North America, the great legend of Chicago blues who will be visiting Morocco for the first time with his ensemble, presenting the mythical music of this Afro-American culture.
China, Palestine, Ireland, Hungary, Mauritania and many other countries and cultures will be with us during afternoons at the Batha Museum, evenings at Bab al Makina, the Nights in the Medina, and, of course, the Sufi Nights at Dar Tazi. The Forum Giving Soul to Globalisation will take place during the first five mornings of the Festival week at the Batha Museum. The Forum’s theme this year is Our era of transition and challenge: culture and identity and the subjects for debate are
Mandela’s spiritual legacies: Lessons for our era/ Social harmony in plural, multicultural societies: what have we learned?/ Morocco: managing and savoring diversity – an ideal, a model, a challenge/ What would Mandela counsel today to achieve peace in the Middle East?/ New ethical and spiritual challenges for modern capitalism
The whole city vibrates to the rhythm of the Festival, with plenty of popular events free to all: Festival in the City concerts at Boujloud Square, children’s activities, programmes for the youth, exhibitions, film screenings and living itineraries.
