    By Houda Filali-Ansary

    What about more concerts this month? The Essaouira musicians might have flown away, there is still plenty left to listen and watch, especially in Agadir and Marrakech. Even those living in the north should check their July agenda: it looks like a small trip closer to the heart of Mama Africa is well worth it, especially as most spectacles are free…

    Salam Raz & Kendra,

    I’m afraid July and August agendas are not ready yet.

    They should be posted at the beginning of each month.

    What kind of activities are you interested in?

    Wa Salam

    Eeks, I’ve just realised this thread should be in Moroccan cities/Villes marocaines not international cities.

    Chica, can you please move this thread.
