The largest work ever undertaken for the protection of musical heritage: the complete recording of Al-Âla repertory, the classical Arabo-andalusian tradition of Morocco which is composed of 11 vocal and instrumental suites, the nûba. Vocals, rbab, violins, violas, lutes, cello and percussion instruments.
The lively style of the Fes Orchestra and the style of Mohamed Bajdoub as the soloist vocalist are quite adequate in this nûba, one of the most cheering of this repertoire.
