This application, which can be downloaded from both Play Store and Apple Store, offers a range of thematic web radios, each of which will immerse the listener in a particular universe.
Otherness is one of the essential foundations of art. The range of music offered by this application enshrines this otherness and celebrates a united, joyful and generous humanity. The ergonomics of the application aims to offer a centralized, structured and accessible musical experience.
In addition to MAP’s 24-hour news webradio, RIMRadio.ma, the Agency’s eleven webradios include Tarab Radio, Radio Maloulou, Radio des Andalousies, Radio Tamazgha, World of Aita, Radio Samaa, DIB Radio, Radio Hassanie, Malhouniates, Radio Oumkaltoum, and Radio Hal (Ghiwani).
“Tarab Radio” presents the classical Arab song, this eternal song that has undergone glory since the 1930s. One city symbolized this musical renaissance; Cairo. Only one city, only one music, but multiple personalities and various talents came from everywhere to give this art all the greatness it has.
It is not a question of nostalgia but rather of transmission. This radio intends to transmit ideas, emotions, texts and dreams to all upcoming generations so as to permanently share artistic Arab refinement.
On the other hand, “Radio Maloulou” offers a walk through everlasting Moroccan songs; an artistic creativity that has illuminated Moroccan imagination since the 1940s.
If the concept of “Moroccanness” could have an explicit meaning, these songs can express it masterfully. An entire generation of artists, composers and lyricists has been involved in this monumental work that has given nobility to the Moroccan song
MAP, through this rich musical platform, also pays tribute to Andalusian music, which remains unique in its diversity. This music has been enriched from the ocean to the Gulf of a thousand nuances that make it a unique universal heritage.
Through “Radio des Andalousies”, the Agency wants to restore this diversity in the most heterogeneous way to precisely show this powerful wealth. From Tetouan to Rabat, Tlemcen to Constantine, Fez to Algiers, Tunis to Damascus, Tripoli to Essaouira, the Andalusian music is celebrated with thousands of feats.
In addition, MAP has not failed to celebrate the Amazigh musical heritage, this creative land where Berber songs are considered a vision of the world and a constituent part of human culture.
In “Radio Tamazgha”, Berber chants will find, in this radio, a singular, welcoming and prodigal fatherland. The entirety of Amazighness music will benefit from an assumed proselytism and will be proudly represented as immaterial evidence of an irrefragable reality.
For its part, the “World Of Aïta” radio highlights the songs of the Moroccan Atlantic plains, and others, which are linked to rain, harvests, ploughing, love and generous nature’s prodigality with countless benefits.
Songs of fulfilled men and women respond to the generosity of nature. This hymn varies significantly from one region to another but always remains in the same register of happy rurality.
Sometimes, when necessary, Aïta can be a song of liberation against the oppressor, of struggle against injustice, and for the emancipation of men and women. Former Caïds, known as the tenants of the protectorate, have been subjected by songs of condemnation and revolt, marking entire generations.
The festive lightness in which some want to maintain this ancestral art does not hold because Aïta, above anything else, is the expression of a dense and prolific human epic.
For their part, lovers of Samâa music will find in MAP’s “Radio Samâa” a panoply of songs, the sincere expression of the love of God and his Prophet Sidna Mohammed may peace be upon him.
Delight to the heart is to go in all purity to meet God through decisive stages made up of prayers, communion, concentration, retreats, songs and celebration of the Divine and his prophet. Those who are on this path will find in this radio voice essential contributions which are likely to sublimate their desire on the right path to God.
Finally, the music of today, the one dedicated to youth, finds all its splendor in “DIB Radio”, which honors young Moroccans’ creativity that has always been very expressive and prodigious on the musical level.
“DIB Radio” presents the Moroccan Rap and its successes, but also other sensibilities that express themselves with as much talent and which also reflect true “success stories” in Morocco. Sensitive texts and admirable voices carry this young wave to heights of inventiveness. Inspired boys and girls find in this radio a welcoming and benevolent place which can, sometimes, be that of the first chance.
Lovers of Hassani music will find in MAP’s Radio Hassani, a station that pays tribute to a sublime art, evanescent and deep, born of nomadism and orality. Little recorded, this art makes of the memory its kingdom where the poetry acquired its letters of nobility since ages and its setting in music followed the evolutions, the peregrinations and the influences to constitute itself in artistic discipline to whole share.
Radio Malhouniates, for its part, is a journey to the heart of authenticity. The art of Malhoune has acquired a double legitimacy thanks to the Moroccan craftsmen of the ancient medinas. It is a music that composes with everyday words, words that are neither learned, nor doctored, even less erudite, but of a confusing dialectal simplicity.
Everything passes through: love, women, nature, jewels, spring, gastronomy, sorrows, suffering, joy, faith etc. Everything is weighed with the trebuchet of pleasures and delights. The Malhoune is an open, curious, tolerant and above all singular world. Meknes, Salé, Fez, Marrakech, Algiers, Tlemcen etc… all these cities still resound with this music of brotherhood and love.
The Ghiwani voice, Radio Hal, is a journey in the 70s, which are marked in Morocco by the intrusion, on a large scale, of this new musical genre, launched by a handful of artists menus of sober instruments and realistic and powerful texts. MAP’s Radio Hal pays tribute to a music that speaks of the life of the youth of the time, its desires, its frustrations and its hopes.
We find Nas El Ghiwane, Jil Jilala, Lamchaheb, Siham, Mesnaoua, Tagada etc.., musical groups, which have liberated the word to spread like wildfire resembling a musical Arab spring before its time.
For those who feel nostalgia for the eternal orientals will find in “Radio Oum Kaltoum” the ideal station to listen to an Arab singer who has marked the history of Arab song, a woman of character, power and influence.
“Radio Oum Kaltoum” offers listening to the Star of the East who, with more than a hundred songs, has introduced the beautiful texts, a demanding poetry, an evolved literature in all Arab homes and beyond.
From Ahmed Chawki to Ahmed Rami, Oum Kaltoum sang love in all its states, the nation, nature and human feelings in all their variations and inspired the best Arab composers: Ryad Sounbati, Mohamed Abdelwahab, Baligh Hamdi, Zakaria Ahmed, Mohamed El Kassabgi, Mohamed El Mougi. Oum Kaltoum is at the head of a monumental work that amply justifies a radio tribute dedicated to her art.
With these new radio products, MAP addresses all tastes and contributes in its own way to the protection of the richness and diversity of Moroccan cultural expressions, translating into reality the text and spirit of Morocco’s 2011 constitution on cultural diversity.
