about

01 – Umm Bulgares (ENG)

From a narrow alley in Marrakech, I watched the passage of a procession on the Boulevard Mohamed VI: Morocco celebrated the 30th anniversary of the death of Umm Kulthum, an Egyptian singer and actress among the most famous and beloved in the Arab world. A lute-guitar in the street broke the respectful silence accompanying the passage of the huge Umm posters. At the same time, from the opened sun-drenched doors of the Institute Cervantes, a Bulgarian female choir was preparing for the evening concert. The voices fleeing the theater burned the air and intersected to the notes of the procession. It didn't look like a random meeting of sounds, it looked like a multi-ethnic courtship, or, at least, something magical. In this passage I tried to find that fleeting meeting point between Morocco and Bulgaria.
Field recording:
The lute-guitar belongs to the accompaniment of the musical theme of a Marrakech procession. The choirs are composed of multi-recordings Institute Cervantes in Marrakech during the rehersal of a female Bulgarian choir.

01 – Umm Bulgares (ITA)

Da un vicoletto angusto di Marrakech osservavo il passaggio di un corteo sul Boulevard Mohamed VI: il Marocco celebrava il trentennale della scomparsa di Umm Kulthum, una cantante e attrice egiziana tra le più celebri e amate del mondo arabo. Una chitarra liuto in strada rompeva il rispettoso silenzio accompagnando il passaggio degli enormi manifesti di Umm. Al contempo, dalle assolate porte spalancate dell’Instituto Cervantes, un coro femminile bulgaro preparava il concerto serale. Le voci in fuga dal teatro incendiavano l’aria e si intersecavano alle note del corteo. Non sembrava un incontro sonoro casuale, somigliava a un corteggiamento multietnico, o comunque a qualcosa di magico. In questo brano ho cercato di trovare quell’effimero punto d’incontro tra il Marocco e la Bulgaria.

Field recording:
La chitarra Liuto appartiene al tema di accompagnamento di un corteo a Marrakech. I cori sono composti da multi-riprese registrate all’Instituto Cervantes di Marrakech durante le prove di un coro bulgaro femminile.
