[VIDEO] International Jazz Day – Aziz Sahmaoui and the University of Gnawa LIVE from UNESCO

Gnawa Jazz celebrates the cultural and artistic ties between the people of Morocco, Europe and Africa. Gnawa refers to a set of musical events, performances and therapeutic rituals that mix the secular with the sacred. This important cultural element was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2019, highlighting its profound cultural significance on a global scale. Gnawa’s fusion with Jazz rhythms has served as a tool for peace and cultural exchange around the globe.

Today, we are thrilled to present a special live broadcast from the UNESCO headquarters in Paris! In anticipation of International Jazz Day festivities on April 30th in Tangier Morocco, we are pleased to showcase a band that epitomizes the essence of jazz. Join us as Aziz Sahmaoui and the University of Gnawa, featuring Adhil Mirghani, Cheikh Diallo, and Amen Viana, deliver a two-part concert.

The first part comprises a traditional Gnawa performance, while the second presents a synthesized rendition. Let’s come together as we pay tribute to the rich heritage of Gnawa and the transformative power of jazz! Learn more: https://on.unesco.org/42r6lZX
