Nomadism and orality give birth to an evanescent art. Little recorded, this sublime and profound art makes memory its kingdom. Hassanie poetry has acquired its letters of nobility for ages, its setting has followed developments, peregrinations and influences to constitute an artistic discipline in its own right. Everything that touches the human soul is said but overdetermined by a nature that is both founding and restive. The desert is a universe with its codes, its laws and its inevitable destiny. An immensity that almost connects two oceans always amazes with its diversity and unity. Listening to it, all of this produces an obvious meaning.
