Morocco, Looking for Jimi

Publication : 7Sky (Switzerland)

Nearly 40 years after the death of charismatic American singer Jimi Hendrix, the idea was to travel one winter around Morocco to follow the footsteps of this peerless guitarist & through a series of portraits and landscapes, to try to capture what is left of Jimi's stays in the minds of the old as well of the young Moroccan generation. The encounters took place in Essaouira and the surrounding villages of Diabat, Sidi Kaouki & Imessouane, along this bewitching Atlantic coast of Central Morocco. It is obvious that, even if time partly erodes memories of this era, traces of a hippie age still live on today in these magical places.
