Fez Festival of Sacred Music

Fez Festival of Sacred MusicThe Fez Festival was founded in 1994 to promote interfaith dialogue through music, the creation of a culture of peace, and respect for ethical and spiritual values. Each year it brings together musicians from around the world for a week of performances in Fez, the ancient religious city of Morocco. The 2006 program included Sufi music from India and Pakistan, Baroque music from France, mystical songs from Azerbaijan, Japanese drumming, a Mass from Argentina, and a finale by Mali's Salif Keita. In 2001, the United Nations honored Festival founder Faouzi Skali as one of seven Unsung Heroes of Dialogue.
