    Andalusian Music is the musical and poetic traditions from the Medieval Andalusia that have been preserved in North Africa by the descendants of Muslim and Jewish refugees since the Reconquista. It is performed in the form of vocal and instrumental suites called Nawbaat or Noubas, based on ancient poems of love, pleasure, wine and nature. Led by Mehdi Chaachooa, the internationally acclaimed Orchestra of Tetouan visits from Morocco with seven master musicians on rebab (2-stringed bass), oud (=lute), violin, viola, qanun (=zither), tar (=tambourine) and darbouka (=metal gobet drum), making the US debut on this national tour. Members of the orchestra are the direct descendants of refugees from Granada, Andalusia, keeping this centuries-old musical and poetic traditions alive today.
