The arab-andalusian world music CD :


Duet: Houria Niati, Vocal and Miguel Moreno, Spanish Guitar

In 2003, I invited Miguel Moreno, guitarist from Seville to join me in a duet. We were so happy with the outcome that we formed 'Habiboun' to perform the 9th Century Arab-Andalusian songs I had learnt in my native Algeria.
I had always wanted to somehow fuse Flamenco with traditional Arab music and we found that the harmonies worked remarkably well. The passionate hot sounds of Spanish guitar fused perfectly with the mysterious, romantic and highly poetic Arabic lyrics, making 'Habiboun' the perfect fusion of Arab and Spanish melodies. This innovative "genre" involves only vocals accompanied by flamenco guitar creating this magical blend of styles we hope you will enjoy... Houria Niati 2010
The CD contains 10 songs, recorded at Mystic Music Studios / London / 2006-2009. More informations : Habiboun website

From her Pressbook :

"Houria Niati often employs vivid raw colours painted directly over her canvasses without sketching. A daring artist by nature she works spontaneously... She normally paints in layers starting with bright colours first followed by darker ones...Then scratch the darker ones to make the brighter appairing again..The trade mark of Niati's style."
Salah Hassan- Journal of contemporary African Art, New York 1995.

"Using oil and pastels, she creates an explosion of shifting colour with a sense of optimism...Her palette is sharp hot oranges and red throb beneath her relentless blues of desert skies...At times, the paint is thin dragged and scratched at others thick sweeping and gestual..."
Sue Hubbard-Time Out, London 1990

"Houria Niati is an intriguing artist. Her work expresses a commitment to creativity which has little fear of exploration and exudes a freshness which lingers in the mind...Walking past her drawings in oil pastels is like embarking on an excursion of the subconscious suggestively laden with many messages and metaphors..."
Kwesi Owusu-Artrage, London 1984
