Lecture-recital by Camerata Mediterranea
  EMAIL TO FRIEND
 
Lecture-recital by Camerata Mediterranea      The rich legacy of Arabic/Muslim civilization in medieval Spain continues to be a vital force in the musical life of North Africa (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia). According to today’s Moroccan practitioners of Arabo-Andalusian music, these musicians are perpetuating a vast repertoire that is many centuries old, one that was performed at the Islamic courts of Spain in the middle ages. In the tradition of Convivencia, Camerata Mediterranea will present a lecture-recital evoking the various echoes, medieval and more recent, Arabic/Islamic, Christian and Jewish, of old Andalusia.

Joel Cohen, Director of Camerata Mediterranea: lutes and voice
Anne Azéma: voice
Boujemaa Ragui: oud, neys, percussion, voice
