Ramparts Supports The Gibraltar World Music Festival 2015
The Gibraltar World Music Festival 2015 is being sponsored, among others, by Ramparts European Law Firm.
This year's festival is celebrating the cultures of Maghreb and Morocco through music, workshops and a short film following the journey of an individual who travels back to Morocco to rediscover his roots.
The festival kicks off on the 16th June with the screening of 'Les Echos du Mellah: de Tinghir á Jerusalem’- the aforementioned documentary directed by French-Moroccan Kamal Hachkar.
On the 17th June the event called ‘Le Souk’ will be taking place at Commonwealth Park. This will imitate the setup of a Moroccan Souk enabling the public to experience the sounds, smells and colours of Morocco. The event presents the perfect way of bringing different cultures together during the times of political challenges in the world.
The festival comes to a close on Thursday 18th June at St Michael's Cave with a music concert consisting of two performances. Franco-Moroccan singer Françoise Atlan, will be performing a piece he calls ‘Convivencia’ – a tribute of Gibraltar to the Festival des Andalousies Atlantiques based in Essaouira. Thereafter, Dhafer Youssef will be performing Jazz and World Music.
The concert promises to be a unique experience for everyone there with musicians of different cultures performing. Tickets for the concert are available at Sacarello’s Coffe Shop & Restaurant and at 92 Irish Town at £30 (General Public) and £25 (Senior Citizens and Students).
Peter Howitt, Founder and Director of Ramparts said: “Ramparts is delighted to be able to support such a wonderful cultural event. A number of us attended last year's music festival and we were very impressed by the quality of the musicians and the management of the event. This year they have raised the bar even higher with the addition of a screening of a documentary and the creation of a Moroccan souk. Yan and his team are passionate about music, culture and cross-border diversity - we share that passion and want to help ensure that the festival continues to be a great success for Gibraltar.”
