Taragalte is a 3-day festival under the stars of the desert, in southern Morocco. During the festival, we celebrate culture, nomadic heritage and world music.
It is a question of reviving the “Moussem”; (ancient traditional festival) which, not so long ago, celebrated the departures and returns of the large caravans that criss-crossed the Sahara between M’Hamid and Timbuktu. The role of these caravans was not only a commercial objective, but also a crucial one in developing cultural exchanges between peoples.
We offer you a program during the festival of Taragalte which will take place at the end of October or the beginning of November 2023 in the desert of M’Hamid.
This schedule can be adapted to your desires, both with regard to the dates of arrival and departure as to its contents.
