Moroccan Gnawan Music

The group ISP gave us new insights into Moroccan culture. Sidi Nagib Soudani, a gnawan performer, showed us how to make gnawan instruments. Once finished, he taught us how to play them. One reminded us of an American guitar. The handmade instruments have such a different feeling than manufactured ones do. They all have a different weight and sound.  Learning about Moroccan culture was so much fun.
