Dakka Marrakchia is traditional Berber music from the Atlas region and the city of Marrakech. In those days, the artisans who made copper tea trays had fun pounding the trays with their hammers and noticed that when one struck at a regular rhythm while another did so a bit late (contrary, delayed rhythm), it produced a rhythm that they later extended to musical instruments. This art requires flawless mastery of rhythm and exemplary synchronization, and is accompanied with songs.
