Three friends, Nouamane Lahlou- a rock rtar and producer of Morocco; Hassan Hakmoun a master Gnawa musician and our friend Laurent LeGall a film director and producer based in San Rafael (California), meet in Casablanca to travel the length of Morocco in search of experiencing its music first hand and personally.
Laurent says, "we seek to understand the historic and modern importance of these cities, while experiencing it through the ‘People’ story, one told through it’s arts, culture music."
