More music from the 2001 Fez Festival of World Sacred Music, recorded live on location in Fez, Morocco is presented tonight on New Sounds. Hear traditional Sufi trance music from a brotherhood of Sufi musicians known as the Hmadcha of Fez. Some of their chants and trance dances were recorded at the Roman ruins under the two-thousand-year old triumphal arch at the city of Volubilis. Plus, hear some sacred music from Southern Morocco and a flamenco mass from Spain's Enrique Morente.
