The raw sounds of Moroccan folk music fill the air of Marrakech's legendary "Jemaa El Fna" in this performance captured live at the central square at the edge of the Sahara desert. As the sun falls behind the horizon a mysterious atmosphere washes over the proceedings, drawing the passions of the performers into the open and sending them drifting into a higher state of consciousness where the music and the musician seem to become one.
