Taragalte is a 3 day festival under the stars in the desert of south Morocco.

During this festival, we celebrate nomadic heritage and world music. Next to this we will host the 5th edition of the Peace Caravan promoting peace and stability in the Sahara and Sahel.

Music and dance

Dance with us under the stars to the rhythms of the desert! From local traditional dance performances to international musicians, there is something for everyone’s taste. The full line up will be announced soon with more then 20 groups preforming.

Art, Poetry and local Products

Celebrate with us the nomadic lifestyle and get stunned by this rich cultural heritage. The festival is a platform for local artists to present their art and craftsmanship. Discover vibrant hand-woven Boucherouite carpets made by the women of the region, admire the skills of local painters, listen to poetry around the fire and spoil yourself with local Moroccan dishes.


Among the many artists who will be present is OUM who has already composed one of her famous songs in honor of the village of M'Hamid el Ghizlane, AZIZ SAHMAOUI whose Gnaoui and spiritual repertoire resembles much of the rhythms of desert songs. Please do come back for more information later.
