The above music would not be out of place at a Middle Eastern/Andalusi event. However, most of the pictures used are Orientalist and not period.
There is a Swedish band called Qiyan Krets does Andalusian music, including Sephardic music.
For those interested, The Arab Classical Music Society has a website where sheet music can be downloaded using Adobe. You can search using Maqam, genre, composer and region.
