May 26 09 - Mawazine Festival in Morocco Update
The Mawazine Festival, is one of Morocco's premier cultural events lasting a week long, with street shows, an exhibition by Arab artists and events for children. The Neville Brother's had an amazing experience at the festival and enjoyed every moment of our stay in Morocco. The Brothers represented New Orleans by playing a heavy set of funk for all the fans and locals who are able to enjoy the show for free. We are looking forward to heading back as soon as we can. Check out some photos from our trip on our photos page. We were also saddened by the news of a stampede at the festival a few days after our show. We would like to offer our condolences to all the families effected by this tragedy. Such a sad ending to a great and beautiful cultural event.
