And So I Watch You From Afar play Morocco, lead workshops



Supporting Morocco - Northern Ireland links in the music industry

Following on from their 2012 China tour for UK Now with the British Council, Northern Ireland’s And So I Watch You From Afar performed at Morocco’s new youth music event, Sun Festival, in Marrakech. This performance is part of a bigger, on-going Morocco – Northern Ireland link focusing on supporting creative and technical skills development for young people involved in music-making. 

Through the support of the British Council, Start Together Studio’s Producer Rocky O-Reilly, and Jimmy Devlin they led workshops with young Moroccan band members over 6 days, in partnership with the festival.


And So I Watch You From Afar play upbeat, motivational post-math-rock, using guitars to emotionally connect with their audience. It's seen them play hundreds of gigs from USA to Russia. They are signed to the legendary US management & record label Sargent House.
