Using cutting-edge technology, the diva’s image will be recreated in three dimensions, providing viewers with a captivating visual and auditory experience, as if they were attending a live concert.

By holding this event, Morocco allows tourists and foreigners residing in Morocco to discover the country’s heritage and culture, promote intercultural dialogue, and celebrate diversity.
