To put the spotlight on one of the planet's crucial issues, the protection of clean drinking water, Jean Michel Jarre conceived and performed the concert "Water for Life" as part of UNESCO's campaign to increase awareness of this problem.
The concert was commissioned by the Kingdom of Morocco and took place on December 16, 2006 in the Moroccan desert near the city of Merzouga.
Jarre invited the best of Moroccan musicians and singers to join him on-stage with special musical arrangements of his work to include their talent.
"Jarre imagined giant-doors to stand in the dessert around the stage upon which he deployed lavish lights and images to accompany the main them of Water...quite surrealist in such a barren, but most enchanting environment".
