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 extremely lively style of the nûbâ Hijâz al-msharqî, the shortest in Moroccan repertory, perfectly suits the radiant interpretation of the renowned Fes Orchestra.
