Sounds of the Sahara at music festival

The Festival au Désert Firenze, a festival of contemporary African, Mediterranean, and European music that began in 2010, kicks off in Florence on July 10 and runs through July 12.

This year's 10th edition of the festival will showcase performers representing nomadism in music from Mali, Sahara, and the Mediterranean.

Shows will take place at Le Murate, the Ex Manifattura Tabacchi, and the Beach on the Arno, for a travelling festival that's free of charge. 

There will be many returning performers, including the Tuareg artist Fadimata Walet Oumar, who has been working for years to find resources to fight poverty and the diaspora among her people. Her music will create a desert atmosphere with dirges and hypnotic rhythms at the Beach on the Arno on July 12.

Women are also in the spotlight with a performance by Almar'à: The Orchestra of Arab and Mediterranean Women, which will present music and songs from around the world on Thursday, July 11, following a seminar titled "Women and the Mediterranean" by Tunisian scholar Leila El Houssi. Opening the festival on July 10 at the Puccini Garden in the Manifattura Tabacchi will be an opera performance of The Magic Flute by Rome's Piazza Vittorio Orchestra, a multiethnic group of musicians and composers founded and conducted by Mario Tronco
