Maalem Abdelkebir MERCHANE

​​​​​​​La scène de la Plage

Abdelkebir Merchane was born in Marrakesh in 1951. At the tender age of 9, the Tagnaouite already held no secrets from him. His roots are Arab, and he is the only Gnaoua in his family. His mother suffered many miscarriages, eleven altogether, so when he was born she entrusted him to a black nanny who fostered his love for Lila concerts. His masters were El Ayachi, Baqbou and Mohamed Sam, who initiated him into the purest tradition of the Tagnaouite. His styles of predilection: marsaoui (Essaouira) and marrakchi (Marrakech). He has participated in a wide variety of international Festivals in Europe, Arab countries, and Japan. He currently directs the Oulad Sidi H'mou group.
