I couldn't find any traditional Libyan music, specifically Malouf (which i'm a fan of!), and so thought I would fill the gap! Enjoy!

This type of music is known as Maluf. It originated in Andalusia Spain when the Arabs ruled most of Spain. When the Arabs were expelled from Spain some of them went to North Africa and took this type of music with them. As a result Morocco, Tunisia & Algeria also have a similar style of Maluf music although it is known by a different name in those countries. (find out more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andalusi...).

The artist that sung the song in my video is called Hassan Arabi. There are many groups in Libya who sing Maluf, but Hassan Arabi and his group are one of the most well known.

If you would like to download this song (it's called Tarz Ar Rayhaan) and others you can get them here:
