LP Mahrajan 72591 (Réalisation: Club du Disque Arabe)
On side 1 is a rather awful modern version of classical Arab music with a far too big orchestra inspired by western symphonic orchestras with a huge mixed female and male chorus. Traditionally this music used to be performed by a solo singer and a small ensemble, the so-called Takht, with just an 'Ud, a Qanun, a Nay, maybe a violin, and one or two percussionists on the Riqq and Darbouka.
Side 2 has a very beautiful and traditional example of the Arabo-Andalusian music of Tlemcen, in the so-called Gharnati (coming from Granada) style.
