The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Moroccan Culture

postcards_3This unexpected card arrived to my old address from Anas in Morocco who didn’t realise I had moved. Thanks to the wonderful new resident, who forwarded this on to me (there are good people in the world still!), I received it! It shows two ethnic groups in Morocco, which Anas is kind enough to explain to me: the Gnawa, who are of Guinean origin and are often associated with healing rituals and wonderful ceremonies and the Berbers, an ancient ethnic group in North Africa. Fantastic card! Thanks Anas!
