Teri & the Electric Blues Parade in Concert!
Thursday, February 21 at 7 PM
ALIF Riad, 6 Derb Drissi, Batha, Fes Medina

Since last year’s tour of the American Language Centers, Teri & The Electric Blues Parade have been developing their own sound and writing new songs influenced by their rock, blues and jazz sound. The new songs take the listener on a musical journey from gentle moments of musical beauty to big sounds of psychedelic rock! Some of these new songs were influenced by the band’s previous visit to Morocco. There will be opportunities to speak with the band and ask questions about the way that performing and visiting Morocco has been an influence on their new music.

This concert, organized by the ALC-ALIF Music Club, is free and open to the general public.
