Come to Taouz to spot mineral formations and possibly dinosaur bones where the desert swallows the road. Between Merzouga and Taouz is the village of Khamlia, whose inhabitants are believed to be descended from escaped slaves. This frontier town is home to notable gnaoua musicians, including Les Pigeons du Sable. Their music is available online, and they occasionally perform locally and at Errachidia's Festival du Desert. Ask at their house (marked by a banner) for details.
