Nights From The Alhambra With Loreena McKennitt

Not Exactly Arabic music, but close. Alhambra Spain is very dear on the Arab people, they gush over this once magical place where Arabs ruled for near 800 years. The mention of Alhambra has a nostalgic value for most Arabs--even the non Muslims of them because for most Arabs, being just and firm was the reason they last for as long.

Spanish people have a soft spot in their hears for the enchantment this city creates in people's minds and souls. Check out this tour where music plays a big part of this journey where Eastern and Western musical instruments are fused live on stage.

Most comments on the video are noting the magic in the performer's eye. This is a long night of music, there are many clips of the magical musical journey. Hard to believe that this is the work of Canadian singer, songwriter, accordionist, harpist, and pianist, Loreena McKennitt and is her first live concert DVD. Loreena is gifted and the world knows as much.
