Yemen



Surrounded by the Red and the Arabic Sea, the Republic of Yemen emerges as one of the most emblematic music sites in the Arab world. Yemen is the place where the enigmatic Queen of Sheba was born and there the colors of its music spread all over its geography due to the great variety of its music types. This documentary is a beautiful and charming experience conducted by Lamya Abdulhadef Al Zubayri. It portrays the eager of the Yemeni musicians to preserve their traditional melodies as the homayni, which comes from Sana and it´s very popular at present, or to cultivate the thousand-year-old art of the oud.
