  • Ali Alaoui
    Born in 1967, in FEZ, the cultural and sacred city of Morocco, Ali Alaoui has practised the art
    of percussion since childhood. At the age of 19, he joined the principal orchestra in Fez, then
    taught at the Casablanca Conservatoire while playing with the Moroccan National Orchestra as solo percussionist.
    In his own country, as in the rest of the world, he always seized every opportunity to share music with musicians of every region and origin, playing folk, popular, classical and religious music as well as classical compositions by contemporary artists. His many-sided activities have made him a teacher
    without frontiers.
