Yelala, WLS & Live Lounge present Mimouna London
3YIN * GNAWA MANCHESTER * NANA * JUMANA MOON* ADELE MOSS * HOSTED BY RACHEL ROSE REID & RAKIN NIASS
Bringing you Jewish & Muslim Moroccan & Sephardi musicians along with storytellers, poets, rappers and cooks from across the world for a celebration unlike any other.
Mimouna London offers a contemporary twist to the Moroccan Jewish celebration of music, food and fortune, influenced by a tapestry of North African folk tradition, a Kurdish Jewish Spring festival, and traceable all the way back to the ancient Barley harvest festival of Akitu. In many towns and villages in North Africa, Jewish people would invite their Muslim neighbours to sing, feast and bless together. In London, Muslims and Jews from all over the world live side by side, join us as we celebrate this union of people, tradition and art.
