In medieval times, Muslims conquered part of the Iberian peninsula and called it 'Al Andalus'. Battles and conflicts with Jews and Christians followed, but there was also cultural exchange, resulting in stories, music and poetry. Musicians with Dutch, Jewish and Arab-Israeli backgrounds bring the old Alhambra to life. With Haytham Safia (lute), Rolinha Kross (song), Monique Lansdorp (violin) and Gottfrid van Eck (clarinet and storyteller). Click here for a video preview.
