Al Taybah Ensemble

The vocal ensemble Al Taybah revolves around soloist Junayd Bourret (vocals and daff), supported by Ismaïl Bourret (solo and choir), Omar Jouineau (choir), Larbi Benmelouka (chorus) Zachariyya Thibon (chorus) and Zayd Bertrand (daff). S. Muhammad Said directs the group.

The love of God and His Messenger for humankind is the central theme of the Taybah Ensemble, a theme drawn from verses of the Qur’an. Taybah’s musical suites (waslât) are punctuated by prayers for the soul of the Prophet, religious hymns (anasheed) to the glory of God and His Messenger, as well as poems inspired by mystic Sufism.
