Times: 19:00 - 20:00
MusicThe event will be streamed on LAAF’s Facebook page at 7pm, Saturday 18 July. No booking required.
After closing last year’s Family Day, we are delighted to welcome back Daraa Tribes as the celebratory closing event of our first digital festival.
A fusion of ancestral tribal music and Saharan Blues, Daraa Tribes comes from the oasis town of Tagounite in the Daraa River Valley of Morocco, with each member originating from a different tribe, bringing with them diverse music traditions to create an eclectic style only to be found in the oases of the North African Sahara.
Daraa Tribes has produced several records, including Alwan EP (2017), Igharman (2018), “L’oued” (single, 2019), and Zamane EP (2019). These were released through the band’s label In Ze Box (France) and can be found on all streaming platforms. In 2019, the band embarked on a five-country European tour, including performances at the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival and Afrika Festival Hertme (The Netherlands).
