radia_rp_palais_badii_2Birds of Marrakech for Radia.fm by Radio Papesse, Florence.

It all started from a terrace during the 2014 Bienniale opening days, then moved into the streets; among the crowd, the tourists, people wandering into new territories, just to find unexpected sounds and stories.
A quest that brought us into a misused theatre, then back to the streets, into the old town, where the ancient and the modern mix.
To hop into a taxi, where the outside noises slowly faded into soundart and migration stories; then back to where history meet the contemporary, in the frequencies of Marrakech cranes, into a lost flock, and the Muezzins’ prayers.
After days of wanderings and getting lost into the Marrakech dedalus, came an unexpected and healing encounter; but then, it is inevitable to end back again into the crowd until, just turning the corner, everything is relaxed and almost silent.
Just time for a mint tea and the birds come back in, so does the music, and the radios and the car horns.
The new birds of Marrkech.
