Fantasia – Guillaume Lanouhe (Association Brev’Art) photographic exhibition
We invite you to see the wonderful photos of Fantasia by Guillaume Lanouhe from Association Brev'Art.
In the Maghreb, fantasia is generally called laâb el-baroud («game of powder») or laâb el-kheil (or «horse game»); more local names also exist: tbourida in Morocco
Fantasia is a traditional exhibition of horsemanship in the Maghreb performed during cultural festivals and for Maghrebi wedding celebrations. It is present in Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Mali, Niger, and Mauritania.
The photos were taken in 2019 on the occasion of the International Festival of Nomads which is a citizen and artistic festival. This festival takes place once a year in M’hamid El Ghizlane, 90 km south of Zagora in the Drâa valley (Morocco). Traditional dances during the festival are held by the women of the village.
