Inspired by the story of Arab writer Ibn Batouta, who, in 1325, set off on a thirty-year journey that would take him from his native Morocco to the heart of China and black Africa, Jordi Savall has recreated the music of this spectacular itinerary, with special attention to the Arab and Western repertories the traveller heard in the courts and palaces.
