Ahwach singing and dancing


A well-known oral heritage of the Amazigh people of the villages and Kasbahs of Ouarzazate: Taourirte, Tifoultoute, Telouet and Taskaouine, Ahwach is an art that combines dance, gesture and poetry sung in the Berber Tachelhite dialect. This tradition that has become a folk dance was originally designed and performed by Amazigh men and women to portray their history and their lifestyle and culture with finesse and elegance.  Since the arrival of the protectorate and with the growth of tourism, Ahwach has become a visual folkloric show. Women and men from the villages of Taourirte, Tifoultoute and Telouet continue this tradition to the delight of tourists and visitors of the region.
