This evening’s show, we explore music from a specific region, the crossroads of European and Arabic culture, Andalucia. More importantly, the show looks deeper into the connection between Spanish and Arabic musical traditions. Through the Moors, these two cultures met. The effect still felt today. From Portugal through the European side of the Mediterranean, these musical traditions fused and had an effect on one another.
