Agadir, Morocco will be hosting the fifth Timitar Festival 1-6 July, so get your tickets now. It’s root is Amazigh (Berber) culture, which were / are the forefathers of the Guanche people, the Aborigines of the Canary Islands. A fact that should be laid on the Spanish people here when they talk about those ‘damn immigrants’, meaning Africans.
Anyway,for this years edition of the festi’ they got Creation Tala, Menwar, Allawa, DJ Ritu, DJ RKK, Jouala, Max Romeo, Sahara Generation, Ahwach Women of Tafraout, Momo, DJ Hassan, Sekouba Bambino & Boure Band and a whole heap more.
I don’t know any of the artists apart from DJ Ritu, who I love dearly, Momo, LA33 and DJ Yusuf, so it’s gonna be a great learning experience.
I’ll be spinning short sets on the Friday, with VJ ItaloVideo providing visuals, so if your in the area, come and say hello, and we can step out afterwards for some of Morocco’s finest.
