Win two tickets to the Fez Sacred Music Journey (http://budurl.com/FezFBcontest) in Morocco. For 14 days “Become a Cultural Insider” to world sacred music, spiritual wisdom, Moroccan arts, culture and food, and colorful ancient markets. You will visit Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Volubilis, Marrakech, as well as Fez from May 31-June 14 2011. This trip will weave the rich Moroccan cultural and spiritual heritage with the 17th Annual Fez World Sacred Music Festival (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1ixId2jPbM&feature=related) including 30 performers from 15 countries. The Journey is much more than a Moroccan travel tour or musical experience. It takes you “inside the culture;” provides access to celebrated musicians; shares Jewish, Christian, and Muslim (Sufi) spiritual traditions; and fills your visit with Moroccan hospitality. The Festival fosters multicultural dialogue through sharing the rhythms of world cultures.
Hamid Mernissi (http://www.fezsacredmusic.com/about/) is heading the 14 day journey. Hamid’s Moroccan roots give an inside perspective to the Fez, the people and the festival. With more than 20 years of Moroccan touring experience, he has been locally honored as an “Ambassador of the Culture.” “Hamid’s Journey” organized by Sarah Tours takes you to a variety of cultural and spiritual sites, including some that are inaccessible to the public. This sacred journey is the way to experience the true culture of Morocco, while enjoying some of the best sacred music of the world.
Sarah Tours is partnering with Entwine Digital and Legacy International to promote the Fez World Sacred Music Festival. Entwine Digital (http://www.entwineinc.com) designs and develops online environments and targeted digital media strategies with a goal to make this event known to world music lovers and savvy travelers in general and North America in particular. It has launched the Journey’s new website which includes trip information, artist background and videos, and more!
Legacy International (http://www.legacyintl.org), a non-profit organization, has been dedicated for over 30 years to promoting peace and cross-cultural understanding by training civil society leaders and fostering a culture of dialogue and participation worldwide. Legacy has been working with people and organizations in Morocco for more than fifteen years.
This is a unique venture that will bring world culture, spirituality, and modern social media all to work for one goal: “Fez Sacred Music Festival”… Everyone can join in this spirit.
