Khalifa Ould EIDE & Dimi Mint ABBA .... Mauritania
Waidalal Waidalal 6'14
(Moorish Music From Mauritania) [World Circuit]
This piece was composed by Eide's father, and begins with three verses in praise of the prophet. A brilliant disc of music rarely recorded. Moorish musicians in Islamic Mauritania are known as iggawin, comparable to the griots of Mali. The first half of the disc features the ardin (a 14 string relative of the kora) and the tidinit, a small lute similar to the ngoni. The electric guitar comes into play later. This piece features clapping as you would hear in Gnawa music from Morocco.
