About Gnawa music
Gnawa is a genre of music formerly enslaved by black Africans, who integrated into Moroccan cultural and social landscapes. This was when a model to preserve the traditions and folkloric music of their ancestors was founded.
In addition to the spiritual motif, Gnawa music is also used as socio-political activism. Fighting against extremism, specifically racism and terrorism.
The music has a well-preserved heritage. A combination of ritual poetry, traditional music and dancing. The music is performed at lila, a communal night of celebration. Dedicated to prayer and healing. Guided by the Gnawa maalem, or master musician, and their group of musicians and dancers.
Gnawa songs’ lyrics often promote positive values and advocate for racial equality, tolerance, peace, respect for all humans, and universal love. As a result, Gnawa music began to be used as a socio-political tool, against extremist groups, racism and Salafist islamism.
