Obviously it’s very limited, but we chose a place for this Electronic Night which is an atypical place since we had imagined this event with an even more limited audience on the roof of the French Institute in order to appreciate the rooftops of Rabat as one can appreciate the roofs of Paris. And of course, this place which is quite astonishing, it is the opportunity to be able to stage music with the three Dj of Moroko Loko who are under the roulette of Amine K“, Confides our interlocutor.

This will be an opportunity to meet with around 40 countries around the world. Then on June 21, we will broadcast this concert that we are recording this evening for the music festival 2021. The Electronic Night is our music festival event. We will therefore edit this film in the coming days and broadcast it on the social networks of the IFM, the IF of Rabat and we have also registered this event on the platform of the French Institute in Paris.
