Tunisia is a North African country with a predominantly Arabic-speaking population. The country is best known for Malouf, a kind of music imported from Andalusia after the Spanish conquest in the 15th century. Though in its modern form, Malouf is likely very dissimilar to any music played more than four centuries ago, it does have its roots in Spain and Portugal, and is closely related to genres with a similar history throughout North Africa, including Malouf’s Libyan cousin, Algerian Bharati and Moroccan ala or Andalusia. During the Ottoman era, Malouf was highly influenced from Turkish music. Even now most of malouf examples are very similar to Turkish classical music.

The earliest roots of the malouf can be traced to a court musician from Baghdad named Ziryab. He was expelled from the city in 830, and travelled west, stopping finally at Kairouan, the first Muslim city of great power in Africa. The city was a center for North African (Maghebian) culture, and was the capital of the Aghlabite dynasty.
