Geotag Icon Moroccan music: Nesseem

audio, music posted by on May 8th, 2009

Searching for a campsite at the end of our longest day yet on the bikes, we came across six young musicians practising under an archway on a main road in Kenitra, Morocco. Their name is Nesseem, and they kindly gave us permission to reproduce their arrangement of traditional music here. The instruments include percussion and two nafirs – three metre long copper horns.
