Samira's Blues had an amazing experience joining festival Taragalte in Morocco's Sahara. Together with members of Tarwa N-Tiniri from Ouarzazate, they gave a magical performance, celebrated by both audience and press. 2M, Morocco's number 1 TV channel, captured these moments in a special reportage.
No scheduled shows at the moment, sorry! That could change soon though so keep an eye on this page.
