World Music - Mauritania - Ooleya Mint Amartichitt (2 lessons, $7.92)

May God Protect Them - and other songs

DVD Available at:
See life in Mauritanian and hear its music as presented by the diva, Ooleya Mint Amartichitt. Travel the desert roads with rare footage from her village. The DVD also includes a powerful concert of her work.

This video presents a concert from Theatre de la Ville, Paris

As Ooleya Mint Amartichitt sings, howls and whispers poetry in praise of the Prophet or dignitaries of her tribe, the Ulaad Mubaraks, we are gently rocked by the haunting voice of this diva. Ooleya Mint Amartichitt sings and plays the ardin (a type of calabash harp) and is accompanied by her sisters' voices and her brother playing the ancient tidinit - a five string lute.

Listen and watch this full length concert performed by Ooleya Mint Amartichitt and her family. Beautiful, intelligent and radiant, her poetry praises the Prophet. She evokes the main figures of her tribe, the Ulâad Mubârak with unforgettable passion.
