The music in a particular Berber village we visited was phenomenal. One of the guys who entertained us one evening at the auberge we stayed at (where the guy from the UK ended up dying…) plays the lotar. He is a silversmith by day and a lotar player by night! A lotar, is a Moroccan guitar, made of a “leg of a bed” or any turned wood, a bowl covered with henna-painted goat skin for the body and 4-6 strings; it is approximately 36″x 10.5″x 8″ and there are generally colorful paintings all over it. And it sounds so great in the right hands.
