The rhythms and music contained in this library are a living tradition that has its roots in the ancient civilisations of the Middle East and North Africa. It echoes the court and folk music of ancient Egypt, Arabia, the Ottoman Empire and Persia. The resulting music traditions are deep and varied, but always evolving as each generation adds its innovations while honouring the forms and work of the past. This complex music often contains ornamentation and overlapping rhythms yet it is woven together into a seamless tapestry of sound.
