radio aporee ::: Marrakesh broadcasts

Marrakesh Souk
Today I've made a series of soundwalks through the Souks (markets) in the Medina of Marrakesh. Some of theses places and encounters I've shared live with listeners on radio aporee while walking, or resting in the shadow. Here are some sonic logs of today's promenades radiophonique (beware, there are glitches and dropouts of all sort in the recorded audio. That's because of the instable media I'm using, live streaming over more or less reliable mobile networks and the like. To expect and not  problem at all. Also, these recordings are made with the radio aporee stream recorder directly to, without any editing etc.):
