The result of long years of research, this book reveals an art that associates the song with poetry and dance, and which is part of the agricultural cycle and the existence of the Berbers of the mountains: the seasonal chain of agricultural tasks , the different phases of the wedding ceremony, the gestures of daily life, are accompanied and somehow ritualized with music. The author also tries to decipher the meaning of the Ahwash, large collective night parties in which poetry, songs, dances and drums intermingle in a sophisticated musical architecture that provides a key to access Berber cosmology. The text is accompanied by a compact disc with musical examples recorded in the Atlas.
