Khadra in Douz

One of my recent projects focuses on public performances of Sirat Bani Hilal— the collection of Bani Hilal epic tales. Below is an excerpt from a large-scale production of selected tales at the International Festival of the Sahara on December 25, 2017, in Douz, Tunisia. The production, titled Khadra, was conceived and directed by Hafedh Khalifa, with musical supervision by Lotfi Bushnak. The selection below is sung by Ridha Ben Abdellatif, a celebrated poet-singer from Douz.
