Lamma Bada


Willi Maerz has arranged the Arabian folk song “Lamma Bada” for four pedal harps, percussion, and choir (SATB). This song “dates back to the 10th century when large parts of Spain (including today’s Andalusia) were ruled by Arabs,” says Maerz. Its rhythm and 10/8 time signature provide a fun challenge to musicians trained in the Western tradition.
