Rawafid Azawane Festival is an end of the year Moroccan cultural event which will feature music concerts, local Moroccan products, poetry readings, theater and fantasia at the city of Laayoune from 24 through  26 of December, 2011. This year’s event theme is "Heritage of the Sahara and arias in the world" and the event will not only include music and Fantasia, but also exhibitions and meetings. It's not all because the organizers have specific goals throughout the event, so the main aim of this event is to showcase the region of Boujdour-Sakia El Hamra, and its cultural heritage and tourism potential. 

The stars of the region will show viewers the best of their performances,  some of the best of Moroccan artists are invited to put a great show, Oudaden, Jil Jilala, H Kayne, Mugheerah, Boushab, Souiri Tahour and many others will be at the party. Other international artists are added to the list. The group Mauritanian Kermiment Aya and the Algerian Cheb Faudel are among the African artists.  
 
The fantasia will be celebrated in Laayoune through Tbourida performances presented by  fantasia performers from all parts of the Kingdom.  There is also a singing competition held in this festival to be attended by some 150 participants. Rawafid Azawane Festival is a great way to discover some authentic Moroccan food, music and arts unique to Laayoune region and celebrate the heritage with the city residents.

Re: Couscous: A Moroccan Tradition
Scott, Your blog bought back some nostalgic memories for me. When I go traveling, its all about the food and the memories that are triggered when I try and re-create a dish i stumbled upon on my travels(without much success).

It was just the other night that I was paging through my album, the photos depicting the utter chaos of the market streets and the beautiful colors on display. It was a visual spectacle. The food was a gastronomic spectacle. My personal favorite dish while visiting Morocco was the lamb tagine with dates. The tenderness of the lamb coupled with the sweetness of the dates was a mere delight and surprise to my palate. Thank you for helping me relive my Morocco experience. Morocco is a must-see travel destination and for more information visit www.essentialtravel.co.uk/magazine/country-guides/morocco/travel-to-morocco.asp for some great travel tips and facts about Morocco.
