The Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival ("Printemps des Arts") is presenting a thousand faces of Morocco this Sunday, 13 April, at the Rainier III Auditorium.  Discover a world of pleasure, dances and traditional music at this special "Made in Morocco" day, which will transport the audiences to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco for a unique musical experience.

Refinement, diversity, richness and suppleness aptly describe this music from far away, crossing the High Atlas from east to west.

The program for this "Secret and Hidden Morocco" day features the Imilchil, Aglagal and Telouat ensembles.

You can also watch and listen to the female ensemble M’almates of Meknès, whose varied repertoire has Andalusian, Berber and African roots.
