Music of the Gnawa Ethnic Group and Position of Women in Moroccan Music

The lecture on ‘Music of the Gnawa Ethnic Group and the Position of Women in Moroccan Music’ will be given by Yousra Mansour and Bab L’ Bluz in the Small Hall of the Youth Theatre on Friday, 11 November, at 2 p.m.

Yousra Mansour and Brice Bottin (MAR / FRA), members of the Bab L’ Bluz band, will bring to our audience a very interesting, unusual and provocative topic. There will be, among other things, discussions about the music of the Gnawa ethnic group, which lives in Morocco and originates from the Sahara desert. Their music is specific, but it is sometimes difficult for the general public to distinguish it from the Berber tradition, as well as West African and North African music. In addition to this, the role Yousra Mansour has in the band is traditionally reserved for men, so she and Brice will also talk about the role of women in Moroccan music, breaking stereotypes and the Nayda social movement, which young Moroccans started a few years ago.

The lecture will be held during the Pocket Globe festival, which takes place as part of the Other? Europe  programme arch.
