Ahram Online photographer Mai Shaheen joined renowned Lebanese singer, composer and oud player Marcel Khalife at his performance in Meknes, Morocco.

The event took place on Monday 12 January at Al-Ahbass hall in Meknes. In the concert, Marcel Khalife was joined by his nephew, cellist Sary Khalife.

The evening accentuated the celebrations of the Amazigh New Year, of which first day opens "Yennayer" also referred to as Haguza, Am Alfilahi or Id Suggas, with the latter name pointing to the celebratory character of the new year's night.

By referencing the agrarian calendar, no longer in use, the event aims at underscoring the historical and cultural heritage represented by the North Africa's Berbers, the pre-Arab communities of the region.
