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 late master of Fes gives us this reference version of one of the main Moroccan nûba, as a posthumous testimony of his art. Rejoicing !
