Gnawa music video

Gnawa music (غْناوة or كْناوة) is a North African repertoire of ancient African spiritual religious songs and rhythms. Its well-preserved heritage combines ritual poetry with traditional music and dancing. The music is performed at lila, entire communal nights of celebration dedicated to prayer and healing guided by the Gnawa maalem, or master musician, and their group of musicians and dancers. We will be treated to a performance by local musicians and dancers whilst on the retreat.
