The Festival Titmar
Published May 21, 2007

Senegalese sensation Africando is one of the groups featured in the Festival Titmar staring this July.

For its fourth edition, the Festival Timitar will be held this year in Agadir from July 4-7 2007. It will host more than forty bands and about five hundred artists from diverse origins to perform on the festival’s two stages.

Each year the Festival Titmar honors artists coming from all over the world including Africa, South America, Europe and the Middle East in order to offer the Agadir audience the best of numerous works in Amazigh traditional music, modern music from the Maghreb and elsewhere, rap, jazz and hip hop.

Since its creation, Timitar has become a key meeting point, both on artistic and cultural levels. As part of Timitar, the Timitar OFF program, which consists of a colloquium and workshops on Deejaying and Veejaying practices for young people, will emphasize Amazigh culture and world music.
