Social distancing can be a strange new concept for musicians who are used to playing in bands and being around other creatives on a regular basis. The coronavirus outbreak has challenged us to stop, take a step back, and breathe some life into the more solitary work that we do, like songwriting. But that doesn’t mean you have to wait until COVID-19 passes to get back collaborating with other musicians. The young ambitious musicians Tarwa N-Tiniri from Ouarzazate, Morocco, invited other musicians to join a musical collaboration. This video is the result of the collaboration with musicians around the world with the song «Taryet» of Tarwa N-Tiniri.
No scheduled shows at the moment, sorry! That could change soon though so keep an eye on this page.
