Music/Maghreb/Blues This has to be the clearest symbol of music’s power to bring different people together: an orchestra consisting of Muslims and Jews playing traditional Arabic and Andalusian folk music together. Founded several decades ago, the El Gusto Orchestra was torn apart by the cold reality of war and politics. However, it was reunited a few years ago and has since taken the magic and joie de vivre, the tragedy and wisdom of chaâbi music around the world. This is an orchestra that has overcome the hurdles of history and generations. “Wherever you go,” they sing, “you shall return.”
