Moussem of the engagement of Imilchil or Sidi Hmad oulmaghni


The village of Imilchil, located in a mountainous valley at 2160 m altitude, is home to the Berbers of Ait Hadidou, shepherds of nomadic origin. Sedentary since the 17th century, they are reputed to be the most authentic and traditional tribes of Morocco. The ritual of marriage takes on the dimension of a social, cultural and spiritual phenomenon among the Ait Hadidou. Organized in September of each year at the place of the Mausoleum of the Saint Sidi Hmad Oulmaghni, the Moussem of Imilchil allows the young people of the tribe to go in search of their sweetheart. The program includes dancing, singing and commercial activities as well as the formalization of marriage acts.
