ahwach by abdellah azizi

Ahwach refers to a folkloric style of music and associated dance from southern Morocco. An Ahwach session is held by a number of performers (sometimes more than 20), both men and women (in some regions only men) playing on the rhythms of drums while chanting. Ahwach is a uniquely Amazigh tradition of Morocco, especially in the region of Ouarzazate, Zagora, Souss. In this project photographer Azizi mixed  portraits of dancers, with photos of dance scenes and the ambiance of Ahwach.
