The Hadra of the Women of Chefchaouen

Sayda Rahoum Bekkali, conductor

In northern Morocco, the ancient village of Chefchaouen is home to a rich and diversified musical and poetic tradition, crystallized in the expressive form called Hadra, or “presence”. The Hadra is a ritual practiced in Sufi communities. It involves invocations, praise and prayer with the aim of attaining a state of ecstasy, in unison with Divine presence.
