Orchestre Andalous - Attawachi Talata - Moulay Ahmed Loukili


Artist : Moulay Ahmed Loukili

Album : Orchestre Andalous - Attawachi Talata

Melodies :

1.Attawachi Talata الثواشي التلاتة
2.Insiraf Kodem Lhijaz Lemchargi انصراف قدام الحجاز المشرقي
3.Sanaii Men Kodem Listihlal صنائع من قدام الاستهلال
.
.

Moulay Ahmed Loukili apprend d'abord la musique auprès de son père, puis en auditeur libre à la mosquée universitaire Quaraouiyine où il rencontre ses premiers maîtres, Mohamed Zahi Berrada qui lui enseigne le oud, Mohamed Ayyoush et Abdelkader Kourrish qui l'initient au répertoire des san'a. Mais ses vrais maîtres seront Al-Brihi et Al-Mtiri, qui rendront d'ailleurs hommage à son talent. Jusqu'en 1936, Loukili fait partie de l'orchestre Al-Brihi à Fès, puis il repart pour Tanger où il fonde l'association Ikhwan al-fan (frères de l'art) qui organise des concerts et assure un enseignement musical.
Professeur au conservatoire de Tétouan, Loukili en profite pour approfondir sa connaissance du répertoire en apprenant les san'a' spécifiques des styles de Tétouan et de Chefchaouen.
En 1952 il devient chef de l'orchestre de la radio, fonction qu'il assure jusqu'à sa mort à la fin de l'année 1988.
Le style de Ahmed Loukili se caractérise par la précision du dawr (mètre poétique) et une parfaite maîtrise de l'utilisation des taratin (syllabes vides complétant le dawr), ainsi que par son souci constant de corriger les erreurs de langue et de grammaire très courantes chez les musiciens. Par un constant effort de recherche et d'analyse, il a également fait oeuvre de restauration en exhumant des san'a partiellement oubliées dont il a reconstitué le mètre et certains passages mélodiques
Laissant des élèves dans les villes où il a séjourné, Ahmed Loukili a également fait des adeptes un peu partout qui le tiennent, à juste titre, pour l'un des plus grand maître de la musique arabo-andalouse.
La conservation des documents concernant la sauvegarde des enregistrements visuels sont considérés comme d’une valeur artistique et culturelle inestimable. La rediffusion des enregistrements en noir et blanc des années 1960 et 70 sont considérés comme patrimoine culturel national au Maroc

This is music from El Andalus at its best. Gharnati, which can be translated as "music from Granada" is filled with sensual longing and old memories; through Amina's voice the old ghosts take place here in this world with dignity and grace. Amina herself is rather amazing - she has degrees in philosophy, philology and dance and her spiritual beauty and wisdom show themselves in her voice and in this sublime album.

Amina Alaoui is a scholar of philology, linguistics, and dance, and a prominent exponent of the ancient music style gharnati. She was born in 1964 to a traditional Fassi family, and has pursued an eclectic musical path that lead her to work with musicians from medieval, Persian, and flamenco musical backgrounds. She is accompanied in many of concerts by the ensemble of Ahmed Piro, a native of Rabat who is considered one of the great Arab-Andalusian musicians.
Gharnati (Arabic for Granada) is one of the major Andalusian musical styles, migrated from Granada, Spain, to Morocco in the 15th century. Its roots lie in the diverse music schools of medieval Andalusia, where the Arab-Andalusian musical style originally developed some 800 years earlier.Gharnati was preserved by the Tlemceni families and other communities that fled Spain to settle in several places, Morocco, especially in Fes.
Amina Alaoui née à Fez au Maroc, dans une famille d'artistes influencée par les traditions savantes et populaires marocaines, Amina Alaoui publie ses premiers poèmes à l'âge de 6 ans et étudie le chant arabo-andalou, le piano classique, la danse orientale et la danse contemporaine. Parallèlement à ses études de linguistique et de philologie, elle développe un travail de recherche sur les chants arabo-andalous et orientaux ainsi que sur les danses orientales et sahariennes. A la suite de sa rencontre avec Ahmed Piro ( Rabat ), elle se spécialise dans le chant arabo-andalou gharnati. Ces dix dernières années, son parcours est jalonné de rencontres et de concerts en compagnie de musiciens de grande réputation tels Henri Agnel, Angélique Ionatos, Djamchid Chemirani, Hughes de Courson, Pedro Soler et Pablo Cueco.
Album : the ancient Andalusian poetry that Moroccan singer Amina Alaoui brings to radiant life in Alcantara has been in her family for generations. Her relatives sang the 500-year-old poems at gatherings and her grandmother murmured them while working on embroidery. The CD, whose title means "the bridge," takes listeners over time and land to the Muslim dynasties of medieval Spain and the music created there. This unique, melodious music along with Alaoui's aromatic voice makes Alcantara one of the best CDs of 1998. --Karen Karleski
Alcantara is a testament to the beauty of simplicity. This CD holds deliciously exotic music spun from the lovely singing of Moroccan vocalist Amina Alaoui and light but expressive guitar and percussive accompaniment from Henri Agnel and Bijan Chemirani. Empty of any sublime pretensions or girlish Western tone, Alaoui sings simply and maturely--with the love for her Anadalusian heritage spilling naturally through. Her style reminds one of Cesaria Evora--not singing to impress but to preserve and celebrate her culture's music. Rooted in a Muslim dynasty of Spain that ruled from the 8th to the 15th century, Andalusian music has a distinctly ancient, Arabic feel that's not particularly melancholy, certainly not solemn--just lyrical and elegant. And Alaoui portrays these qualities with a rare grace and expertise. To mine for more gems of Amina Alaoui's talent, check out her first U.S. release, Gharnati: Arabo-Andalusian Music of Morocco.

*Emil Zrihan : Emil Zrihan, cantor of the synagogue in Ashkelon, kept the Judeo-Andalusian and folk traditions of his mother country Morocco alive in his heart. Following the immense success on stage here at last is the international debut album by the man nicknamed "the voice of the mocking bird". The impressive vocal range and power of Zrihan's counter tenor express both the emotional intensity of North African religious songs and the vivacity of Andalusian music. His fascinating "mawals" (improvisations) are subtly enhanced by oud, violin, accordion and darbuka which repeat the themes with spirit and gusto. The upbeat rhythmic tempo with its Mediterranean flavor alternates with passages imbued with the languor of the Orient, a mix which evokes the family gatherings, the songs and the dances of the Sephardic culture. The guest of honor on Zrihan's recent album, Baldi Olier, adds the sensitivity tempered with pride of his guitar playing style which stems from the purest of flamenco tradition. The producer Yossi Fine has managed to capture the strength of Emil Zrihan's extraordinary voice, adding bass and both African and Brazilian percussion to the traditional instruments, thereby conferring on this album a sound which is at once profound and elegant, light and playful and which invites the listeners to move and shake, to click their fingers, to clap their hands, and inevitably to dance. Emil Zrihan, the Moroccan Nightingale, was acclaimed as the surprise of Womex 97. A performer who captivates audiences with his exceptional contra-tenor voice and stage presence. The voice of Emil Zrihan, stamped a note of deep satisfaction on everything that happened at the Womex Festival, with his holy songs from North Africa and tonal Arabic-Andalusian music.
