Bag a ringside seat to observe the oboe-playing snake charmers, gyrating transvestites, acrobats turning back flips to riotous applause, and fire breathers spouting flames into the night sky. Look out for bizarre one-offs such as banjo players balancing cockerels on their heads. Gnaoua musicians in sky-blue robes fuel the party with their spinning tassels, castanets, and drums.
