Be there as renowned musicians from all over the world gather in Fez -- Morocco's spiritual capital. Sahara Soul Travel has created a 10-day ground travel package from June 3 to June 12, 2011, beginning and ending in Casablanca, with private, daily sight-seeing tours in air-conditioned luxury vehicles with English speaking drivers for eight evenings of festival performances in Fez, Morocco's ancient holy city.
The Fez Festival of World Sacred Music is widely regarded as one of the world's premiere musical experiences. Musicians and performers from around the globe flock to this festival to present eight days of a cross-cultural variety of styles of "world music" featuring the diverse beauty, musical arts and cultures of Ethiopia, India, Afghanistan, Morocco, Brazil, Senegal, Spain, France, Italy, the USA and more.
In June, 2011, Fez will vibrate as "the secret of love" is expressed in the opening opera "Majnoun and Layla," then carried on through the resonance of the Samaa of Morocco, percussions of Shangahi, drums of Japan, lyrical voices of Paris or London operas and the ecstatic reverberations of Qawwali. Most performances take place in the gardens of the Batha Museum under a giant Barbary Oak or in the courtyard of the Bab Makina Palace of grand Arabian Nights splendor.
Booking the Sahara Soul Travel tour, travelers are welcomed by a private driver and escorted throughout their trip by Morocco's best English-speaking guides, in luxurious, air conditioned private transportation. Day-time tours include: high-lights of cinematic Casablanca; the city of Rabat, Morocco's capital bordering the Atlantic Ocean; the famed medieval Medina; the historical holy city of Kairouan, founded in 670; spice and perfume markets; the architectural splendor of the Attarine Medrasa, created in 1355; plus museums, Souks, bazaars, formal gardens, Roman ruins and folkloric local villages. Each evening, private transportation is provided to and from The Fez Festival of World Sacred Music performances.
