We spent 12 days doing a self-drive tour of Morocco, a round trip from Rabat taking in: Chefchaouen, Fes, Ifrane, Merzouga, Marrakech and El Jadida. As we drove through the Sahara towards our Beber Camp, we stopped at a small Cafe attached to a school. They were doing music lessons and invited us to watch. What fascinated me was the contrast between lively, energetic music played at a ferocious pace, and the lack of expression and enthusiasm of their faces.
Apparently Beber music is all about conformity, being part of the ensemble, and therefore individuality and any expression of that is frowned upon... you must stick to the collective beat.
This photo was shot on Sony A7iii, with 24-70mm f2.8gm at around 50mm.
