Arab-Andalusian music from Al-Andalus (also known as Muslim Iberia) is one of the most sophisticated in the Maghreb. This centuries-old tradition has been strongly influenced by the Berber, Arab, African, Jewish and Christian cultures that have long coexisted in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. 
Over the years, several variations have been identified, including Andalous in Fez, Sana'a in Algiers and Malouf in Constantine. Traditional Algerian Chaabi music is a variant of Sana'a, born in the Casbah of Algiers at the beginning of the 20th century.

During a residency at the Conservatory of Arab-Andalusian Music in Fez, the five members of the group Nouiba (Lyon/Algiers) and six musicians and teachers from the Fez Conservatory decided to merge their respective traditions.

Together, the two groups have developed a repertoire that is both poetic and festive, combining scholarly and popular traditions from Morocco and Algeria.
