Nuba and Sirocco: Laylit Shibbet
NUBA was formed by Moez MÕRabet to perform the music and dance of his Tunisian homeland. The musicians of NUBA made their first recording on cassette in 1997 and now on this new CD NUBA is joined with SIROCCO. These talented musicians gave birth to this romantic, energetic and mystical remake of that first recording with four new songs and new arrangements. This is a joyous and exciting collaboration.
Moez MÕRabet lead vocal, oud and percussion; Armando Mafufo lead percussion; Sulyman 'el Coyote' guitar, vocals, ney and violin; Eric Foster zukra, clarinet and saxophone; Mott Jordan acoustic bass; Dror Sinai doumbek and vocals; and the Zibee Sisters (Erin, Aliza and Elizabeth) chorus.
