For Artez Studium Generale Samira Dainan takes us on a personal and lyrical journey through Morocco and parts of the Sahara. It’s a biting and poetic exploration of what it means to find your own sound and voice. The Power of Moroccan Roots Music is a thrilling collection of memories and music told by a person in search of her history and her voice, with each account of every audio excerpt radiating love and care.
No scheduled shows at the moment, sorry! That could change soon though so keep an eye on this page.
