12th Annual Fes Festival of World Sacred Music Announced
Published May 3, 2006

The 12th annual Fes Festival of World Sacred Music in Fes, Morocco will take place from June 2 to June 10, 2006.

 

This year, the inspiration for both music and contemplation is found in “Harmonies” – our theme for 2006. In the words of the Festival’s Director General, Faouzi Skali, this theme brings us back to “the major challenge of our times, that of moving on from the hackneyed ‘culture shock’ mode towards a system of international relations that enables a harmonization of cultures.”

 

As happens every year, the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music encompasses three sections that will take place in different areas of the medina.

 

For June 2-10, the World Sacred Music concerts will take place every afternoon under the famous 100-year old barbary oak in the Andalusian gardens of the Batha Museum.  In the evenings, concerts will take place within the walls of Bab Makina, the largest of the ancient gates to the medina.  The opening concert, including an appearance by members of the Moroccan royal family, features Les Arts Florissants from France, directed by William Christie.  Other concerts include Syria’s Hassan Hafar, female qawwali star Abida Parveen from Pakistan,  a  Missa Criolla from Argentina and a Missa Flamenca from Spain, viola de gamba virtuoso Jordi Savall performing ancient music from the Cherifian kingdom of Morocco, Taiko drumming from Japan, music from South America’s cathedrals, mystical songs of Azerbaijan and much more. This year our grand finale will feature the incomparable Malian singer Salif Keita.

 

From June 3-7, within the Batha Museum, the colloquium “Les Rescontres de Fes: Giving Soul to Globalization” will take place for the sixth time. Over a hundred participants from all over the world will meet during these five days to speak of their experience
