Black Coffee in Morocco bringing dance music Alongside with Themba, Angelos, Amine K, Savage & Shè Nomads, Mr. ID.
The desert, located just outside of Marrakech. The Grammy-nominated Subconsciously artist, among others yet to be announced, will appear on the first edition of Lost Nomads.
The Agafay stone desert will provide all who attend the show with an unrivaled view of the High Atlas Mountains as well as a tranquil oasis to remember. The party lasts from dusk to dawn, providing viewers with a comprehensive look at one of the world’s most breathtaking environments.
Black Coffee is a musician who understands his roots. Born in Durban, South Africa, he has always incorporated his African heritage into his music, and he is now the headliner of an exciting new African event called Lost Nomads. From June 11 to 12, no more than 2,000 people per day will travel to a secret location in Morocco’s Agafay Desert, 40 minutes outside of Marrakech.
His quote from his acceptance speech of the 64th annual Grammy awards says a lot about what kind of artist he is :
“I want to thank God for the gift of music and being able to share it with the world and heal souls and help people go through whatever they’re going through in life,” he said before thanking his fans and his children. I want to thank my fans all over the world and people who follow what I do, thank you so much for believing in me. I want to thank my family and my children.”
This event will include music, but it will also honor the desert’s nomadic culture. A desolate place, but one where communities have formed for thousands of years, resulting in some of the world’s most prominent cultural contributions.
But Lost Nomads’ captivating approach does not end there. The festival has created an intriguing social program with the goal of assisting local communities in the Agafay desert.
One way to accomplish this is to set up a nomadic souk during the festival where locals from the Atlas Mountains can sell their handmade crafts (carpets, jewellery, Argan oil, etc.).
Another is that, following the event (and in collaboration with the Travel Link Foundation), Lost Nomads will arrange for access to a medical van, which will provide free check-ups and pharmacy products to all members of a nearby village.
