Gnaoua Festival, Essaouira, Morocco, 24th Edition, 22-24 June 2023

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

For those who have ever had the pleasure and privilege of attending the annual Gnaoua festival in the Moroccan coastal city of Essaouira, it is an experience never to be forgotten. The festival not only showcases the mesmerizing mystical music and dance of the Gnaoua traditions, but also attracts jazz, pop, rock and folk artists from around the world, many forming one-off collaborations on the numerous sound stages and other venues throughout the city, invigorating the tradition and expanding their own musical journeys.

For those who are unable to attend attend this year (and even those who can, but want even more Gnaoua when the stages are quiet), here's a playlist mad up of most of the artists scheduled to perform this year. I hope you enjoy - and look forward to joining you in Essaouira again in the future, In sha'Allah!
