Zaafran Caravan: Radio Diaries From Northern Morocco
2 September 2017
This broadcast follows and documents a journey of two weeks through Northern Morocco.
It tells the tale of first encounters and cultural discoveries through pairs of European eyes, ears and mouths, the intention being to explore virgin territories with curiosity for all its facets; the popular one, the touristy one, the superficial one, as well as the religious, culinary social, linguistic and musical one.
It’s a tale of the ordinary told through the lens of the particular, looking for cultural identities in the everyday details.
It’s the incipit of a discourse, intentionally left open for further things to come.
