The collective is distinguished by its inspiring melodies that create poetry in motion. In addition to their own compositions, the group breathes new life into pieces drawn from the Maghrebian, Arab-Andalusian and Moroccan-Jewish repertoires. Nominated JUNO award-Winners of the 2012-1013 PRIX DE LA DIVERSITÉ, Ayrad have performed at the Festival Orientalys, the Week-end des rythmes du monde, the Festival des traditions du monde , and the Rendez-vous de la chanson Québecor.
We are delighted to welcome the group all the way from Canada to perform especially for the crowds at the Edinburgh Mela.
