Bnet Houariyat
Part of ARABESQUE: Arts of the Arab World

Hailing from the region of Marrakech, Morocco, the five women of Bnet Houariyat perform traditional Berber songs and dances that reflect the multiple facets of Islam and the female condition. Hauntingly beautiful, the harmonies, melodies, and rhythms in the songs transport you to another world. The themes explore the cultural traditions and the reality of these extraordinary women.

Scroll down the page for more upcoming and past ARABESQUE: Arts of the Arab World broadcasts. The Al-Farah Choir performance is particularly cool. I've never seen/heard a whole Arabic choir before.
