Moussem of IMILCHIL: The Marriage Festival

Deep in the heart of Morocco survives a culture with an ancient way of life virtually untouched by the outside world. To this day, scattered among the peaks of the High Atlas Mountains, Berber tribes maintain traditions begun by their ancestors hundreds of years ago. High on a verdant plateau sits IMILCHIL, the pastoral gathering place for the surrounding tribes of the AIT SOKHAM and AIT BOUGUEMMAZ. They gather at the end of summer, in the early days of September, having spent the spring and the heat of summer in the mountain peaks with their flocks. Now it is time to begin the transition to leave the nomadic life behind and settle in for the winter months. It is time to prepare the plots and terraces for the autumn sowing. And now it is the time, as it has been for centuries, for the social gathering to occur. Berber tribes gather for the celebrations. As well as being the place to choose a potential spouse, the Moussem of Imilchil operates as a fair or a big market, with artisans and farmers offering their produce to a wider market than is available at the weekly Souk.
