Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ibn Battuta had the same significance in the Muslim world as Marco Polo in the Western countries. A relentless traveler, he deeply changed the perception of the Orient among his contemporaries and the following generations. Morocco, Mali, Egypt, Yemen, Zanzibar, India, The Maldives and China: this non-exhaustive list gives us a hint about the extraordinary journey Jordi Savall invites us on. As usual, he is surrounded by early music experts and this CD-book is lavishly illustrated. Ibn Battuta had the same significance in the Muslim world as Marco Polo in the Western countries.
