"Music in Historical Moorish Córdoba"
The centuries of flourishing Moorish culture in Andalusia have a central significance for European culture. This epoch did not only arrange the substantial bases to modern natural science in the occident, but also gave indicative impulses to its artistic development. It inspired the development of music instruments and even formed the lyric poetry of troubadours in the Middle Ages. Traces of its manifestations of that time still are to be found in the flamenco and the Maroccan "nauba".
