Internationally renowned artists will take us to Spain, Brazil and Argentina under the leadership of Artistic Director, Micheal Catalan Torreilles.

It is with great pleasure that I present this new programming Musical Mogador, Daniel Karbownik, General Manager of the Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa announces with passion, the programming for the second Musical Mogador.
