Chleuh dancing-boys, Jemaa al fnaa, Marrakech

Around dusk in the north west corner of the Jemaa al fnaa the famous-dacing boys gather and start to perform. The dance and accompanying music will build to a crescendo many hours later.

The cultural origins of this tradition lie in the fact that it would be considered innapropriate for women to put on such a performance. Visitors are welcome to stop a while and watch, as long as they contribute a few dirhams.
