The Parallells duo are proud to launch their « A Day In » series with a fantastic film from Essaouira in Morocco, directed by Arnaud Moro during Moga Festival. The film features a new and exclusive track “A Day In Essaouira” (Episode.1)
The Parallells, Maalem Omar Hayat and his crotales players performed a unique show combining Gnawa music infused with electronic music. It came about as an initiative from Moga Festival called Moga Creation. Creating bridges between tradition and modernity, perpetuating the heritage of Essaouira, a city of mixed cultures,highlighting local creativity and hospitality, this project is what Moga Creation aims for. Parallells rehearsed in the middle of Essaouira’s Medina, in a sacred place where the synergies were shivering when electronic music met traditional Gnawa’s rhythm and culture. After 3 days together, they played this memorable live at Moga Festival, a performance forever engraved in many people’s hearts. All the sounds of the medina were recorded and made the rythmics of this music.
