the arabic language,Morocco received from the Orient an important
artistic heritage.He was enriched after that with the Andalus culture(hispano-maurish).
Nowadays,a part of the musical tradition of this precious heritage
appears in the countries of the Maghreb under the name of ala,çan'à
gharnati maluf and recently the andalus music. Cordoba, Sevilla,
Granada all shared in the boost of the language,the poetry and the
andalus music .
The andalus music reigns as master of all events, weddings, romantic
Despite of the beautiful melodies of the instruments it is the singing
that prevails in this art and it is made of two genre :
*The melismatic solo with a free and improvised rythm
backed up by a single instrument.
*The syllabical singing,whose melody is set and predetermined,sang
by a choir sometimes punctuated by solo performances.
