Hamid El Kasri, now based in Rabat, is one of the biggest stars on stage and is particularly renowned in Morocco for his great voice. He is originally from the northern town Ksar El Kbir (thus his nickname is Kasri, meaniung from Ksar). In his youth Maâllem Hamid was much associated with the gnawa scene in Tangier and masters such as Abdelwahab "Stitou". He began his apprenticeship at the age of seven. He has the gift of being able to fuse the music of the north with that of the south: gharbaoui from Rabat, marsaoui from Essaouira and soussi or Berber from the south of Morocco.
