Matrouz means « which is embroidered » in Arabic. From oral tradition, this Judeo-North African heritage born in the multicultural region of medieval Andalusia is sung in Arabic and Hebrew.

For this creation, Simon Elbaz explores different ways of expression : music, singing, storytelling and theatre, which for the first time puts on stage the Matrouz repertoire.

The excerpt below mixes poetry and North Africa-Andalusian, Judeo-Spanish, eastern, medieval... music, A journey from tradition to contemporary creation, from a village of Morocco to Paris.
