"On this new Ocora disc, Aïcha Redouane and the Ensemble Al-Adwar rediscover the art of wasla (a musical suite performed by a chamber orchestra -- qanun zither, oud lute, kaman violin and riqq percussion), which reached its apogee in Cairo in the 19th century. It is a repertoire and a vocal technique that once seemed completely lost. Redouane, born in Morocco and raised in France, is a leading exponent of Arabic and Arabo-Andalusian music."
