Morocco: The Heart of Morocco - The Middle (Episode #707H)

KQED 9: Thu, Dec 1, 2016 -- 11:30 PM

The three friends, Nouamane Lahlou, Hassan Hakmoun and Laurent LeGall, begin their voyage in the western foothills of the southern Middle Atlas (Moyen Atlas) mountains and travel to Fes. The amazing old capital of Morocco lives in two worlds, the new modern Fes and medina (old town). From the ancient city-the medina in Fes-the friends learn that the history and music intertwine to bring out the richness and diversity of the culture. From Fes, the friends head to Khenifra and then on to Merzouga in the Sahara desert. Similar to the changes in topography, so do the people, the culture and the music change. Over the dunes the friends ride ATVs and jam under the amazing night sky by a desert fire. Nouamane, Hassan and Laurent then travel to the city of old-word charm and elegance, Marrakesh. The artist ambassador is the legendary Gnawa artists, Hassan Hakmoun and Fnaire. They show the different sides of this magical city and how it inspires them. The journey ends in the coastal city of Essaouira, where Hassan has asked other famous Moroccan music artists to participate in a traditional Gnawa ceremony.

Atlanta, Ga (Episode #603H)

KQED 9: Thu, Dec 1, 2016 -- 5:30 AM

Music Voyager is invited to Atlanta, Georgia to experience the heartbeat of the city from the inside out. The host is musician Tacuma Bradley who explores the Atlanta landscape while following the six degrees of separation between the people he meets. These include musicians Christian and Brand Bush, who brings them to the neighborhood of Buckhead for an unplugged performance at a local cemetery. They are introduced to their friends Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics. Ruby's music sets the tone to explore the funky and artistic Five Points neighborhood. Ruby introduces them to the feisty Myra, who owns a boutique cuisine shop called La Fruta. Myra then takes them to the Elevate Festival in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Finally, an introduction is made to Killer Mike, a local hip-hop legend and activist who brings Tacuma to his barbershop/community center to experience a concert with Killer Mike and special guest Big Boi from OutKast.
