Essaouira: Moroccan Music
Whilst wandering atop the ramparts in Essaouria, I came across these guys playing some traditional Moroccan music. In Morocco it has become the custom for the locals to expect a few dirhams in exchange for tourists taking photos of them. However, in this case, the musicians weren’t really in a position to demand payment from the gathering throng of onlookers, because they were being filmed for some music video or documentary by an American film crew.
It would have been pretty silly of me not to take advantage of the situation and grab a few shots for myself……
