Laaraka - meaning mystery usually begins with a long Oud Taksim but in this video we go straight to the rhythm. August 2010 M4P were invited by the very organized German Franciscans to do the main concert at the end of a 5 day pilgrimage to Vezelay, France. A beautiful town on a hill with a story.
Taala means "come" in Arabic and we teach it to the audience as the song asks for the holy spirit (samba spirit) to come. Whatever Nabil and Samia sing in Arabic is summerized in the Hebrew verse by Ofer. Music is the
universal language. The concert started before sundown
and ends with dancing in the illuminated stage behind
the big cathedral in Vezelay.
