Dakka the Marrakchia is a musical cultural tradition exclusively of Morocco. In Arab, the word dakka means to rythmically strike with the hands due to the particular sound produced by the hands striking a smooth surface with the together or separated fingers. Also it can be written of other ways, like daqqa, dekka or to dekker. As its name indicates, dakka the Marrakchia was originated in the imperial city of Marrakesh and mainly has its maximum expression during the festival of Achuri (celebrated the tenth day of the Muslim year). The celebration of weddings also is an excellent occasion to listen to dakka the Marrakchia, where the atmosphere is vibrant, cheers and animated. Dakka represents a type of rythmical applause, like Las Palmas, perfectly precise and controlled. It is a true feat manual based on three phases of rythmical acceleration orchestrated by three main instruments: ta' rijt, small pandereta of terra-cotta with bell-mouth form; tr, a membrane instrument; and qarqaba or karkaba, crtalos of iron that remember to the snaps of the fingers used in Spain. The troops consist of many percusionistas that begin with songs that make reference to the saints of the city and evoke all the flatteries that deserve.
First stage, extensive and majestic, directed by the main percusionista, remembers to some of the Ahwsh dances. The second phase (or phase median) is simple, moderate and repetitive. It is a prelude to the waited for change of rate during the third and last phase of this dakka Afs call (that means hand in language to bereber). During this final phase, the artists of dakka let themselves take by the effects of the popular trompeta or nfr and are able to still more increase the atmosphere of communion, entertainment and mysticism that without a doubt will enchant to them.
