Rabat- Mawazine Festival Rhythms of the World has set the rhythm for Friday night with some of the brightest stars in the global music industry. The Sale stage audience will experience the pulsating beats of Moroccan rising stars Ihab Amir, Cravata, and Reem starting at 10:00 p.m.
The Mawazine stage of Sale has picked the winner of the MEMA Award, 22-year-old Moroccan singer, songwriter, composer, and guitarist Ihab Amir to take part in the opening concerts of the festival.
Following his participation in Lebanon’s 11th Star Academy Arab World contest in 2015, Amir has been named “most popular singer in the Arab World.”
Amir made his commercial debut with the songs “Nta li Bditi” and “Taala Lia,” which have been viewed millions of times on YouTube.
The powerful vocals of the young singer Reem will also find an echo in the Sale stage. Reem, raised in Rabat, made her career debut in 2016 with the song “Essalama ya rabbi.”
Reem graduated from Opera House in Cairo and has several song titles under her name, including the patriotic song “Maghrebi saib.”
Folklore group “Cravata,” whose songs “Wana Wana,” “Sef Seyef,” and “Coupe D’Afrique” have made a buzz on social media networks, will also join the Sale stage with their youthful vibes.
On the same night, Armenian-Spanish violinist Ara Malikian; Ghanaian guitarist, composer, producer; and singer Ebo Taylor; Dutch DJ Martin Garrix; and the “Caesar of Arabic Song” Iraqi singer Kadim Al Sahir will perform at the stages of the Mohammed V National Theater, Bouregreg, Olm Souissi, and Nahda.
The Rabat and Sale stages will witness the reunion of music lovers until June 30, the last day of the 17th Mawazine Festival.
