Amina Alaoui


The artist singing the Andalo-Sephardi song is Amina Alaoui. She has studied Persian classical music but her interest in her family background took her to Spain and Gharnati music. This is a music style found in Morocco and Algeria, which can be traced back to the Al-Andalus and the city of Granada. The word Gharnati is Arabic for Granada. The Muslims left Spain in 1609 after they were expelled.

Amina Alaoui’s most recent album can be heard through ECM records or listened to & bought from Amazon.
