Nuba of Gold and Light tells the story of a music. The Arab Andalusian music, with Nuba as its symphony… As a musical tree, its branches are nourished by the sap flowing since the fourteenth century from Morocco’s most remote areas and currents coming from Arabia, growing in the courts of the Andalusian Caliphs, gaining strength in medieval Spain, mingled with the songs of the troubadours and the Sephardim, before being replanted in the Maghreb and flourishing further into Morocco under the name of el Ala. —Africultures
