Filmed from the perspective of performers, this documentary captures the spirit of Libyan folklore, where African and Arabic traditions collide. If you ever wondered where some of western music's more exotic ideas originated from, this unique overview of Saharan folk music ensemble and dance is a great place to start!

Directed by Hisham Mayet. NR, 54 mins., 2004.

No longer available on DVD, this program is made possible with the kind permission of Sublime Frequencies.
