Master Musicians of Joujouka are proud to announce that the group will open the Glastonbury Festival 2011. We are honoured to be accorded this privilege and play the Pyramid stage on Friday 24 June, later that day the stage will host amongst others Wu Tang Clan, Morrisey, B.B. King, Biffy Clyro and U2.
The musicians will remain at Glastonbury for the duration of the festival playing at our own area in The Park area. These performances will be un-amplified ritual trance and will allow for the musicians to showcase their music in a natural way and allow attendees at the festival to gain a unique and intimate experience with the Master Musicians playing just as they do in their native village in the North of Morocco.
