[Morocco] An evening of traditional Berber music with Youssef Lkhayer

The Music of Morocco's Tamazigh with Youssef Lkhayer
An evening of traditional Berber music: Back Bay Unplugged series of the AIC Center
Thursday, November 1, 2012
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Show at 7:00 p.m.
$5 Cover

The rich and diverse cultural aspects of Morocco are beautifully captured in Youssef Lkhayer’s music. Born and raised in Tafrout, Morocco, Youssef combines themes from Berber, Touareg and Kabyle styles. On the guitar and djembe, his melodies are inspired by Izenzaren, Idir, and Tinariwen (who recently played Boston’s legendary Paradise Rock Club), and on stage, he whistles and sings for peace, love, unity, and a world without borders. He is more than just a performer – he is also an advocate for a better world.
Youssef recently performed at the African Festival of Boston and the Beautiful Morocco Festival in Stamford. Additionally, he performs in Morocco at concerts that promote the country’s vibrant Amazigh culture. If you enjoyed October’s Multicultural Mushaira, be sure not to miss Youssef Lkhayer!

    This sounds amazing! I'm not totally sure if I can go, but I'm sharing it with the Boston World Music Meetup as well. :)
