“A new travel program using the audio playback technology ‘Immersive Audio’. Viewers are surrounded by 360° stereophonic sound. Visit Morocco in North Africa. Travel to the exotic port city of Tangier and the magical ritual festival of Joujouka, an unexplored village that Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones admired. Morocco, where music is linked to religion, is still alive today. What kind of prayers can people put into music?”
