Group Doueh is the most beloved and innovative family band in Dakhla. For 33 years, band leader Doueh (Salmou Baamar) and his wife Halima have uplifted the people of the Sahara, inspired equally by Mauritanian griots and childhood idols Jimi Hendrix and James Brown. Theyve toured the world with superstars like Omar Souleyman and Tony Allen, but their biggest gig to date is the wedding of their eldest daughter, Oulaya.

Oulayas Wedding is an intimate portrait of a family of artists and their court of extended friends and peripheral misfits, who lovingly navigate the emotional and logistical maelstrom of a week-long Sahraoui wedding. Presented are candid and sincere ontological accounts on art and identity by the residents, hosts, guests and musicians who make these weddings a foundation of Sahraoui culture. Sublime Frequencies co-founder Hisham Mayet and his team were Douehs personal guests and given unprecedented access to record the preparation, pageantry and stunning sounds of Oulayas Wedding. The result is a film of warmth, humor and belonging through music in this remote region.

An absolutely beautiful document: rich and intimate.  The New School

The collective Sublime Frequencies, indefatigable sound explorers, takes us into the whirlwind of a Saharawi wedding, in the midst of virtuoso musicians and eccentric guests.  La Gaîté Lyrique

Oulayas Wedding was produced as a collaboration between Sublime Frequencies and Raw Music International.
