Classical Andalusian Music

Andalusian classical music is a style of Arabic music found in different styles across the Maghreb (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and to a lesser degree in Libya in the form of the Ma'luf style) and the Levant. It originated out of the music of Al-Andalus (Muslim Iberia) between the 9th and 15th centuries. Andalusian classical music orchestras are spread across the Maghreb. They use instruments including oud (lute), rabab (rebec), darbouka (goblet drums), taarija (tambourine), qanún (zither), and kamancheh.
