Musical Moments in Morocco

There’s something to be said for the power of music to transcend language and culture and bring joy to so many people.

After another incredible three course, home cooked Moroccan meal our hosts at Kasbah Itran, on the outskirts of the Sahara Desert treated us to an impromptu performance of several Arabic and Berber tunes. Our group and the locals sang, danced, clapped, chanted and laughed ourselves silly for over an hour.

I passed a doorway in Ait Ben Haddou today with a sign that read “May Peace Prevail on Earth” (you can see it on my story).

In that hour or so where we all danced in the Kasbah, peace and joy prevailed. No one cared what each other’s race, religion or political views were. We all just smiled, clapped and wiggled our booties. It was epic.
