In the wake of the harrowing earthquake that shook Morocco on the evening of September 8th, the world reels from the news that the disaster claimed over 2,900 lives, injuring 5,000 more. With the World Health Organization revealing that around 300,000 individuals have been impacted by this calamity, with numbers expected to soar, many are left grappling with the destruction of their homes, essential facilities, and entire villages disappearing from the landscape.
However, the indomitable spirit of the local music community is shining through the darkness. Nine illustrious Moroccan artists, including the likes of Cee ElAssad, Chryzalid, Driss Bennis, Guedra Guedra, Kidizdey, Kosh, Polyswitch, Raskas, and Saib, have come together, melding their creative prowess. The result? A poignant compilation titled "MUSIC FOR RELIEF", crafted to offer a beacon of hope and comfort to those grappling with the aftermath of the disaster.
