Note: This section of the ahwash dance begins with an unaccompanied vocal melody sung by the women’s chorus, translated by Alan Lomax’s interpreter: “Al-Malik (king) Hassan comes to the beautiful gardens.” The women are then joined by a counter-melody sung by the men, with rhythm accompaniment by the frame drum ensemble.
