Tan-Tan Moussem festival marks centuries-old lifestyle in Morocco

Thousands have been gathering in western Morocco for the week-long festival known as Tan-Tan Moussem. It’s a celebration of a lifestyle that dates back centuries and acts as a showcase for one of Africa’s most colorful communities. The first Moussem was organized in 1963. It was suspended for 25 years until 2004 because of security problems. Now the festival is playing an important role for the Bedouin, with their lifestyle currently being profoundly altered and threatened by economic upheaval and urbanization.
