Rabita Andalusa

Rabita Andalusa is the name given to an ensemble composed of soloists of the Larache Conservatory, the ancient Roman city of Lukhos where, during the golden age of Andalusian-Maghrebi civilization, the sultan Youssef ‘Abdelhaqq El Mérini (1258-1281) reigned. The goal of this free-wheeling association of musicians is to give life to the Andalusian-Maghrebi musical repertoire without forgetting its connections to the popular music of Northern Morocco or the practices of religious brotherhoods.

An artistic choice guided by both authenticity and rigor has directed Rabita Andalusa to reduce their formation to the bare essentials: a rhythmic section composed of a tarr and a derbuka; the plucked stringed instruments represented by the ‘ud and qanun; and the bowed stringed instruments represented by the rebab and the kamanja.

Tarr- (played by Adil Amrani) – small tambourine on a circular frame, with five pairs of small cymbals: inserted into the body. It is known in the Arab lands of the Orient as the diff.

Derbuka- (played by Driss Ghani) – drum with one membrane and a goblet size body; hit on the side, it emits a dry high-pitched sound (tàq), hit in the center it emits a low-pitched sound (dùm).
