Over the years, several variations have been identified, including Andalous in Fez, Sana’a in Algiers and Malouf in Constantine. Traditional Algerian Chaabi music is a variant of Sana’a, born in the Casbah of Algiers at the beginning of the 20th century.
During a residency at the Conservatory of Arab-Andalusian Music in Fez, the five members of the group Nouiba (Lyon/Algiers) and six musicians and teachers from the Fez Conservatory decided to merge their respective traditions.
Together, the two groups have developed a repertoire that is both poetic and festive, combining scholarly and popular traditions from Morocco and Algeria.
