Discover Traditional dances Morocco

Traditional dances play a very important role in the lives of Morocco's various tribes. In Essaouira, the Gnawa try to out do one another in acrobatics to frenetic rhythms. The Guedra, a female dancer covered from head to toe in a black veil, carries out an enchanting dance with her fingers and hands. In Guelmin, 125 miles south of Agadir, it is a tradition honoured every Monday, the day the souks are held. Al Aïta (a rural, traditional music) can be heard during the moussem and other popular celebrations.
