Frrom Bendir to Sendir

Othman El Kheloufi – Anse Kuyl – Mona Abdel Wahab– Marie Cocriamont

Moussem supports composer and multi-instrumentalist Othman El Kheloufi from 2019 onwards in the development of his musical course and accompanies From Bendir to Sendir, his master-apprentice track for passing on craftsmanship, within the framework of a scholarship of the Flemish community. For the next 2 years, Othman will embark on the trajectory 'From Bendir to Sendir' with students Mona Abdel Wahab, Anse Kuyl and Marie Cocriamont. Through intensive training and guidance, musical interaction and working visits to Morocco, the pupils will be immersed in traditional Moroccan music and its instruments, in synergy with the contemporary musical context. The course is rounded off with a musical creation.
