Moalem Mohamed Boumezoug with his band on the stage of Moulay El Hassan - Gnaoua Festival 2024 Maâlem Mohamed Boumezzough was only twelve years old when he discovered Gnaoua music during the first edition of the Gnaoua and World Music Festival in Essaouira, in 1998. Fascinated by the Gnaoua universe, he began his initiatic journey mastering the qraqebs, dance, and the most secret rituals of the brotherhood. He played with the greatest maâlems from the age of 17, notably with Maâlem Abdellah Guinea and other members of his illustrious family. He also honed his craft with the Soudani clan, and the Baqbou family. Maâlem Mohamed Boumezzough later integrated the Tyour Gnaoua group, led by Maâlem Abdeslam Alikkane. His first experience in France—with the Band of Gnawa group—opened the doors to an international career. He received first prize at the Young Talents Festival in Essaouira, and followed up this success with several festivals in Europe and in Morocco. Today Mohamed Boumezzough is considered to be one of the top talents of the Souiri’sthe new souiri generation.
