Musician in the Kasbah des Oudaias, Rabat, Morocco

As we were wandering through the meandering streets and twisting lanes of the Kasbah des Oudaias in Rabat, Morocco, we came across this local musician entertaining the passing pedestrians. I think this three-stringed lute is called a guinbri or santir and is common and popular throughout western Africa.

Unfortunately we didn’t have time to stop long to listen to him, but I am pleased I took this photo of him resplendent in his colourful traditional clothes.
