> Tunisian Maluf
Monde de la Musique: ★★★★
Lotfi Bouchnak, vocals
Tunis Traditional Music Ensemble, cond. Fethi Zghonda.
Maluf remains one of the major expressions of Tunisian classical music and has maintained the refinements of its multi-secular origins at the crossroads of the Andalusian and Ottoman traditions. Admirably accompanied by a small ensemble of eight musicians, Lotfi Bouchnak gives us a taste of the subtleties of an exemplary vocal art, powerful yet refined.
