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.
Ramal al-Mâya is not only one of the main nûbâ in the Moroccan classical repertory, but also the hugest worldwide religious work. This majestic version, recorded for the first time in its integrality, is rendered by one of the four last Morrocan masters. A moment of intense fervour.
