Riffian Rif / Edition of 9

Two Riffian musicians perform in the narrow, pastel blue streets of Chefchaouen while small-town life unfolds in the background. This small town is located in the Rif Mountains of Morocco, whose slopes and valleys are awash with marijuana cultivation. The marijuana on these mountains helps make Morocco a top producer of marijuana in the world. Here marijuana, called kif, is openly smoked and available. Perhaps the name of the tune being played is “Kif in the Rif.”
