About the Festival

Join us for an unique experience at the door of the Sahara, 3 days of nomadic lifestyle and world music.

Experience Local Culture

We like to welcome you to our festival. During the last 6 editons we have learned and grow together as a team and with the community. We are so happy to celebrate and to revive the "Moussem" from the early days when the caravans were still travelling from M'hamid to Timbuktu. The role of the caravan was not only trade but also a unique opportunity for cultural exchange.

The 7th Edition of Taragalte

This years’ festival will be under the theme ‘Oasis, source of life at the heart of the Sahara’. This choice is explained by the role of the oasis, as true guardians of civilizations in arid regions, meeting place of economic, social and cultural exchange. Around this theme a variety of workshops and conferences will be held. And of course a theme of the hour on the eve of the COP 22 (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) held in Marrakech in November. Next to this we will also launch our latest project: a music school for talented youth of M'hamid El Ghizlane called "Joudur Sahara"

Get Connected

Taragalte means ‘meeting place’, a festival to meet and connect with local and international people who share the love of music, art & culture. Our artists mix with the crowd which gives the festival a unique atmosphere of sharing and connecting. Take a walk through the nomadic camp and learn from locals all about nomadic culture, participate in a workshop or dance with us into the night. Actually, we are one big family!

Caravan of Peace

In the spirit of cultural cooperation, Taragalte welcomes the 3 rd ‘Cultural Caravan for Peace’ and dedicates a special night to peace and stability in the Sub Saharan region. The Cultural Caravan for Peace is a creative Trans-Saharan Sahel project, supporting dialogue, cultural exchanges and social cohesion in the Sahel and Sahara regions. Through music and art, the Caravan will provide the people of the Sahara and the Sahel region a platform to meet, exchange ideas in order to promote and preserve the cultural heritage.
