Suite for Abu Sadiya
Category: Music
Year: 2016
Status: Closed

This project is an attempt to explore the forgotten Stambeli music through a jazz perspective, by composing and recording original music. Stambeli is a healing music created by slaves brought to Tunisia. The project is inspired by Abu Sadiya who, according to the legend, was a sub-Saharan hunter whose only daughter was taken into slavery and brought to Tunisia. In his search for her, he danced and sang his sorrow in Tunis, becoming the first musician of Stambeli, thus personifying the memory of slaves in Tunisia.
