Un té a la menta

Un té a la menta

“Un té a la menta” is built on the music from a cultural area with which we have very important bonds, although it is often too unknown: the Maghreb. We travel to North Africa, where we discover the high musical richness of the different peoples who form the Western part of the Muslim world. We listen to the chants and rhythms of Berbers and Amazighs (the original inhabitants of Maghreb), of the Gnawa people (descendants of African slaves), and of Sufis (the mystic branch of Islam). We recall the important influence of the Arabic music in the Iberian Peninsula, with Andalusian-Arabic songs, and we also discover modern styles such as the chaâbi or the raï.
