The festival, founded in 2006, brings together a diversity of music styles, techniques and nationalities, uniting artists from the East and the West. Indeed, this year, musicians from such diverse countries as Spain, Egypt, Turkey, Iran, Mali, France, and India will participate.
Combining contemporary, traditional and neo-traditional music, the festival will be an interesting confrontation between the past, present, and the future. In the wake of the historically unprecedented moments Tunisia has been witnessing, the Musiqat Festival is an innovative approach to world music reflective of our ‘new Tunisia’.
