This article examines musical exchanges between Moroccans and Spaniards, which are often underpinned by the notion of a shared cultural heritage. Such exchanges promote intercultural dialogue and the social integration of Moroccans in Andalusia. Focusing on one individual, I explore the strategies musicians use to integrate socially and musically in Andalusian society. I examine the ways in which Moroccan musicians negotiate their day-to-day musical landscape and the tensions between overt displays of cultural difference, social integration, and musicians’ own artistic aspirations. In so doing, this article puts ethnomusicology into dialogue with scholarship on the policies and everyday realities of multiculturalism and interculturalism.
