“This is Maroc”, is a reportage documenting recently emerging trends of contemporary and eclectic Moroccan music. The exhibition will include photographs representing the spirit of present day Morocco as well portraying cultural aspects that are not readily associated with the tourist image shown in travel brochures. Yann Sivault and Nicolas Orsini during their trip in Morocco have not only collaborated on all visual imagery as well as film footage for the project, but have equally worked very closely with local musicians.
The exhibition will also feature a screening of different footage and interviews realised during the visit of different cities such as Rabat, Casablanca, Meknes, Marrakech and Esserouera. Yann and Nicolas are showing an exciting new face of current musical and cultural trends that are true eye-openers.
