The Ma'lūf in Contemporary Libya
An Arab Andalusian Musical TraditioneBook - 2012
Ma'luf, which literally means 'familiar' or 'customary, ' bears the auditory traces of music brought to North Africa by Muslim and Jewish refugees escaping the Christian reconquista of Spain between the tenth and seventeenth centuries. This book investigates the place of this orally-transmitted music tradition in contemporary Libyan life and culture.
