A Magical Tour of Fes, Morocco: Sacred Music to Open Hearts and Minds

Morocco's Fes Festival of World Sacred Music attracts music lovers and seekers from many corners of the world. The attraction? A beautiful and ancient city full of legends and arts, a spiritual legacy and aura that draws pilgrims from far and wide, and a feast of diversity and stunning performances. This year's theme (it's the 18th annual festival) is Re-enchanting the World and it kicked off with a dazzling multicultural creation honoring Omar Khayyan. Unique among festivals of this ilk, a forum that probes critical issues, among them the future of the Arab Spring, draws almost as large crowds as the musical events. It's a magical place to be in June.
