A quest for “the” Marrakech sound is futile as the sound is a plurality. There are sounds heard in the streets, the maalems, the musicians, making it impossible to speak of only one type of Moroccan music. There are many types.
The recording sessions were done as the meetings progressed: a qanun player from the Sahara, a percussionist selling instruments on Jemaa el-Fna square, Berber musicians, gnaouas musicians recorded impromptu in the riyads, in a park, in the zaouïa, or even in their homes. In Morocco, silence does not exist. Music is everywhere. There is a constant duality between challenge and pleasure, tradition and modernity. The result of this is felt by listening to sounds that are as varied as the city of Marrakech itself.
