This program brilliantly brings together flamenco with the Andalusian repertoire of Morocco (al-ala) – music originated in the courts of Sevilla, Granada and Córdoba during the Golden Age of Andalusia (9th-13th centuries) when Muslims, Jews and Christians co-existed in southern Spain.

Chekara Arab-Andalusian Orchestra of Tetouan has collaborated with many flamenco leading singers, including Enrique Morente, Carmen Linares, Arcángel, and Jaime El Parrón (Heredia´s father).

Founded over 50 years ago by the famed Abdessadak Chekara, the orchestra is now directed by the violinist and singer Jallal Chekara, Abdessak´s musical heir and nephew, and it includes musicians on violin, oud (lute), kanun (zither), guitar, and percussion, as well as the dancer Mari Ángeles Gabaldón.
