Faluka was launched in Cordoba in April 2014 and subsequently established in Granada. It proposes a musical and research approach to the Mediterranean music as a way to better understand the own musical heritage, by exploring the rhythms and modes that bring us closer to the traditions of other Mediterranean countries. Its full repertoire includes Byzantine chants, the two Iberian traditions on exile (Sephardic and Andalusian) and traditional and popular music of Greece, Turkey, Balkan, Maghreb and Mashreq. The songs are performed in their original languages (Greek, Turkish, Arabic, Judeo-Spanish, etc.).
