The film La Nouba d'or et de Lumiere (2007) by Moroccan film-maker Izza Genini features the melodies that once resounded in the mansions of Cordoba and Seville, and that are now heard in Chefchaouen, Tetouan, Tangier or Ksar El-Kebir.
With the most eminent orchestras of Moroccan music, the film shows how all generations, classes and religions enjoy the music of the Nouba.

His is an important voice in the Jewish American community, fighting for a just solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
