Marrakech: an immersion into the secret and warm world of the Gnawa. They are the musicians, priestesses and initiates of the cult of possession that comes from the descendants of the morrocan slaves. Ahmed Baqbou, one of the greatest gnawa’ music masters is our guide into an universe where festivity, musical virtuosity and presences of the invisible power of the genies gather to build a powerful harmony.
