This album is devoted to the griots of the Moors, these ancient Arabic-speaking nomads who traveled all over the western Sahara through the centuries, from Senegal to the south of Morocco. The griots, professional musicians belonging to ancient lineages, are still, for the time being, the almost exclusive holders of the forms of classical music that they transmit from generation to generation.
Aicha mint Chighaly, a griot singer accompanied on the ardin harp, the tidinit lute and the tbal, a big kettle drum, carries on the tradition of evenings of music and poetry in Moorish camps. Praises to the prophet, eulogies of the noble warriors, satiric and love songs.
