"In a vast plain encircled by mountains lies the medieval city of Sanaa, capital of Yemen. Sanaa maintains the most authentic of the vocal and musical traditions of the south of the Arabic peninsula. Sublime poetic texts (dating from the 14th century) and highly original instruments (qanbûs luth and percussion set on a copper plate) inspire the music of Ocora's collection entitled The Singing of Sanaa. This is the quintessence of Yemenite traditional music, featuring classic themes of courtly love, nostalgia and longing."
