Get your groove on this summer at the Montreux Jazz Festival Morocco in Marrakech, and stay in the former home of Jazz Age icon, Josephine Baker.

The name Josephine Baker is synonymous with the age of Jazz in Europe and its connections to the Belle Epoque in Marrakech. A spin-off of one of the most famous jazz festivals in the world (the Montreux Jazz Festival in Geneva), the Moroccan take on the legendary Swiss event brings the two continents together once again through music. Running from 30 June to 15 July 2017 at the Bahia Palace in Marrakech, the Festival will feature workshops, acoustic concerts and the famous Montreux Jazz Club, all in the surrounds of the evocative Red City.

Jazz fans wishing to fully immerse themselves in the genre should check into Riad Star. Previously part of a Royal Palace owned by the Pashah of Marrakech, the luxury riad welcomed Josephine Baker as a long staying guest in the early 1940s; now guests can marvel at Josephine memorabilia collected by the current owners, as well as dress up in some of her original outfits. Each of the riad's thirteen rooms contains individual touches and references to Josephine and the Jazz Age, from books to dresses and instruments. The boutique property has recently been extended to incorporate a cookery school and spacious courtyard. Perfect for a roaring '20s themed dinner party.
