Hassan Hakmoun was born and raised here, this is the city that taught him Gnawa music at age five and he played to feed his family. Hassan takes the friends to the house where he grew up, the bakery that he worked in and the instrument maker that makes his sintir from scratch. The Medina of Marrakesh is always bustling with the unexpected, from exotic foods, clothes, entertainment and colours to the amazing blend of modern and eclectic. From Marrakesh the friends head to Essaouira, the old city of Mogador by the sea. The blend of Arabic, Hebrew and French sounds can be heard floating through this seaside resort. The home of the International Ganawa Festival. Hassan invites the original Ganawa group to perform on the old fort overlooking the ocean.
