Local music

The dances of the Draa Oasis are ahouash, haidouse, rokba, aouad, chamra and squla.


Folk music invites us to travel back through long periods of history. Civilizations in harmony with nature gave birth to popular local songs over centuries. The Draa has played a leading role in Moroccan culture as a crossroad for Islamic civilization. The popular songs and dances express the vision and thinking of the group. The rich and varied songs serve to celebrate all kinds of festivals: weddings, circumcisions, baptisms and the like. This mainly oral heritage is passed down from father to son.
