Culture: 2013 Fez Festival of World Sacred Music.

2013 Fez Festival of World Sacred MusicWe have updated our Fez Listings/Events page to include the 19th Fez Festival of World Sacred Music which takes place from 07 to15 of June this year. The opening spectacle on the evening of the 7th June looks very interesting, a homage to Andalusia and the strong historic links between Fez and the southern Spanish region. The following night's concert looks similarly interesting, a collaboration between a Greek Byzantine Choir and Turkish Dervishes. Sunday 9th sees a night a Flamenco music, something that has gained supporters in Fez, as seen from the packed evenings at Fez's annual Flamenco Festival.
From the 10th to 12th we have the now annual, Nights in the Medina, where concerts are held in traditional Medina houses, giving a more intimate feel to the performances.
On the 13th we return to Bab Makina for Syrian singer, Assala Nasri and on the 14th with have South Africa group Ladysmith collaborating with the Chicago Gospel Experience. Then on the 15th the Festival closes in a similar vein to Bjork's sucessful 2012 concert, with a nother left-field rock legend in Patti Smith.
The Festival also has the usual Musee Batha afternoon concerts and the late Sufi nights at Dar Tazi. There should also be the big free public concerts at Place Boujuloud, although the line-ups have not yet been made available. It certainly looks like an interesting Festival for 2013.
