The Taragalte Festival returns to the oasis for its 11th edition

After two years of absence, due to the pandemic, the Taragalte Festival is making its big comeback with an 11th edition based around “Heritage sobriety”.

For this 2022 version, scheduled for October 28, 29 and 30, the festival will try to draw on the wisdom of the nomads of the world, the responses to the urgency of a world in loss of bearings. Sobriety, a cardinal value of nomadic culture, is today a prerequisite for facing the changes in the world: climatic and civilizational.

This new edition will also be an opportunity to mark the 9th stage of the Cultural Caravan for Peace, after that in S├ęgou and the desert festival in Ag’na in Mali, in order to continue the Sahelo-Trans-Saharan commitment and cooperation in favor of dialogue, solidarity and peace between these brotherly peoples.

Festival-goers are thus invited to find in the memory of the sands and the poetry of the stars, an inner alignment, a shared wisdom and happy projections for the future.

Under the starry sky of M’hamid El Ghizlane

Like every year, the festival will be held in the middle of the sand dunes, in the province of Zagora, near the Oasis of M’Hamid el Ghizlane (Southern Morocco). It takes place precisely near the former starting point of the caravans that once criss-crossed the Sahara, from M’Hamid el Ghizlane to Timbuktu.

Note that the Taragalte Festival was born in 2009, inspired by the Moussem and its traditions, in order to contribute to the socio-economic development of the region and to promote the nomadic cultural heritage. Taragalte is a festival that allows you to meet and communicate with local and international populations who share the love of music, art and culture. The artists live daily with the festival-goers and this is what gives the festival this unique atmosphere of sharing.

Taragalte is a co-founding member of the Cultural Caravan for Peace network supported by the DOEN Foundation (Netherlands) which is inspired by the historical role of caravans of the last centuries which were not only economic but also socio-cultural. These caravans brought people and their families together around music, poetry, art and a certain way of life.
