About the event

The Ibn Battuta Foundation organizes an extraordinary concert to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the entity with the performance of these two great musical groups, on February 2, at the Sala Apolo in Barcelona.


Born in Tangier, Muslim is the reference of Moroccan youth and many Arab countries, in which he sings of respect for values and coexistence between people around the world. In the 1990s, he began to be influenced by the effects of American rap, an essential source of his later inspiration. One of his greatest hits "Al Risala" (the letter) , with more than 20 million views on YouTube , has become a hit nationally and globally, conveying a clear message to the Moroccan government, demanding a profound change and drastic to help the most disadvantaged classes in the country. However Muslim's current big hit is the song "Mama" , released in July 2018 and with over 50 million views on YouTube .


The group "Lemchaheb" was founded by the spiritual father Mohamed Elbakhti and the great artist Chrif Lemrani. This group played a very active role in the beginning of the "Ghiwanie" phenomenon together with the bands Nass el Ghiwane and Jil Jilal, where they traced a path full of creativity through very moving musical compositions and poems of Arab nationalism, human themes and coexistence between peoples around the world. This European tour of the group, which will begin in Barcelona at the Sala Apolo, carries the slogan "Morocco: bridge of coexistence between Africa and Europe" , and which will tour Spain and Belgium, adds two new songs to its traditional repertoire: 1 - "El Mahjar" lyrics and composition by Chadili Mbarek. 2- "Jinakom" lyrics: Kisra Salah Eddine and composition: Madani Saad.
