The Fragrant Garden: from al-Andalus to North Africa (Limerick Early Music Festival 2024)

Saturday, 23 March 2024, 8.00pm

The music and poetry of al-Andalus continue to be played today in cities throughout North Africa, hearkening to the golden age of Arabo-Andalusian culture in the Iberian Peninsula. This concert will feature Moroccan Nubas, Gharnati songs, and Sephardi Andalusian liturgical poems and songs in the vernacular, showing how language, sound, and aesthetics converged centuries ago and continue to give their fruits, as in a fragrant garden.

Vanessa Paloma Elbaz (voice, harp)
Zaki Chaabi (voice, percussion)
Mustafa El Meknassi (violin, oud)
