about

A crossroads of civilisations, Majid Bekkas’ Morocco is a land that is rich and the bearer of traditions and cultures. With this album, Bekkas shows just how much his country has been influenced and influences the history of Africa, the Middle East and the West due to its position. Morocco is a genuine cultural bridgehead.

In Arabic, this bridge is called “Al Qantara”.
