Ahidous ⴰⵃⵉⴷⵓ

Ahidous ⴰⵃⵉⴷⵓ

Ahidous, ⴰⵃⵉⴷⵓ is our traditional dance and music. 

Ahidous is more than just a dance and musical performance; it is also a social and cultural event that brings Amazigh together and reinforces our sense of community and identity. It is often performed on special occasions, such as weddings, festivals, and other important ceremonies.

"Mouha Oulhoussein Achiban", is the undisputed master of this famous dance and an iconic fighter for the independence of Morocco. He was nicknamed the “Maestro” by President Ronald Reagan after one of his outstanding performances in the US.

He left our world in 2016 at the age of 113 and remains a legend who popularized Amazigh music across the globe. 

In recent years, Ahidous has gained wider recognition and popularity outside of the Imazighen communities in Morocco, with many people seeing it as a symbol of Imazighen culture and identity.

With Love,
