Welcome to harmonia mundi, United Kingdom store
- A band of musicians coming from different places of the Mediterranean, gather in a moment of rest around an aromatic mint tea. Their music will carry us from the European continent (with strokes of polka, waltz and mazurka) to the North of Africa, where we will discover the great musical richness of Magreb.
We will listen to old chants and rythms of the berbers (inhabitants of the Atlas mountains), of the gnawa (descendants of slaves), the sufi (mystic people from Islam), we will remember the major influence of the arabic music in the Iberic penninsula with arabigoandalusi themes, and enjoy modern styles like chaâbi or rai.
The Orchestra was born in the late twentieth century in the Catalan capital and is made up of musicians from different backgrounds including Morocco, Tunisia and Greece. Its founding members are Mohamed Soulimane (director and violin) and Mohamed Ayoub Bout (voice).
