The friends travel across the Atlas mountains to Marrakesh, one of the most exotic cities in the world. This is where artists and poets, painters and creatives sought their inspiration. 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. From Essaouira the friends head to the southern deserts of the Morrocan Sahara, the home of the Sah Roui people. They invite popular artist Fnair to join them. The friends travel to Agadir, a major city in central coastal Morocco. Beyond the tourist grid, this port city is the home of the Timitar Festival, a festival of Amazigh. We seek out the music styles of Haha and Arouassa. Then venturing further into the western Sahara as guests of Hassan Hakmoun, Fnair and Nass el Ghiwan, we travel by road to Ad Dakla. Through our artist ambassadors we seek to understand Gadra music, its origins, how it is being preserved and the modern interpretations of this style of music.

This episode sees the Music Voyager team delving deeper into the Georgian heartlands, where spirituals, gospel and the blues laid the foundation for American popular music. We start in Albany with Miss Rutha Harris, one of the original Freedom Singers that marched with Martin Luther King Jr to Washington DC. Every second Saturday, Ms Harris still assembles her fellow Freedom Singers and new voices from the next generation to join in song to keep the spirit of freedom alive. Next we head to Columbus and the house of Ma Rainy 'The Mother of the Blues'. Her colourful story is just one of many enriching experiences on this journey to where it all began.

In this episode of Music Voyager, we explore the impact of music from the Bahamas on popular music around the world. Musician Fred Ferguson gives us a tour of downtown Nassau while describing the enduring impact of Bahamian folk music and icons such as Joseph Spence on the world's sound. Did you know, for example, that the Beach Boy's 'Sloop John B' is a Bahamian folk song and that the Grateful Dead always ended their set with a song from the Bahamas? We discover the important role the Bahamas played during the Calypso era from the 1940s to the 1960s, as well as its essential role in the history of funk, soul and disco. We then meet up with the Baha Men, whose song 'Who Let The Dogs Out' was a worldwide smash. Finally, we meet up for an impromptu dance party in front of a conch stand with D-Mac, our pick for the next big international star to come out of the Bahamas.
