At the crossroads of Africa, Europe and the Middle East, Morocco is a melting pot of culture and custom.

You can feel it in the bustle of the crowded souqs and you can taste it in every aromatic tajine. It’s floating in the air above the High Atlas Mountains and it’s caught in the grains of the endless Sahara. It’s a vibrancy, an urgency, an assault on the senses. It is the essence of Morocco. Play it again, Sam.
