Para mí, Al - Ándalus, en concreto la época del Califato de Córdoba, representa un delicioso misterio. Su exotismo; los enormes conocimientos médicos, filosóficos, astronómicos, arquitectónicos, artísticos y culinarios que alcanzaron y, sobretodo, el respeto y tolerancia que mantenían sus gentes, la convierten en una auténtica perla de nuestra historia. Ilustres personajes como Ibn Walid, Abul Qasim, Ibn Rushd (Averroes), Ibn Arabí, Moshé Ben Maimón (Maimonides), Al- Karayi, Ibn Hazim y otros tantos que desconozco, vivieron en la época andalusí y nos aportaron grandes conocimientos filosóficos, médicos, científicos y artísticos que supusieron grandes adelantos para la época.
Esta canción es un tributo y está ambientada en aquella maravillosa ciudad palatina llamada Madināt Al- Zahrā, joya del califato cordobés y, cuya capital, Córdoba, competía en belleza con la gran Constantinopla (actual Estambul).

To me, Al - Andalus represents a delicious mystery. Its exoticism; the great medical, philosophical, astronomic, architectural, artistic and gastronomic that achieved and, above all, the respect and tolerance maintained by its people, above all in the time of Cordoba Caliphate, make it in an authentic pearl in Spanish History. Illustrious persons like Ibn Walid, Abul Qasim, Ibn Rushd, Ibn Arabí, Moshé Ben Maimón, Al- Karayi, Ibn Hazim, and other unknown ones, lived in this period and gave us great philosophical, medical, scientific and artistic advances.
This song is a tribute and is set in that wonderful palatine city called Madināt Al- Zahrā, the jewel of Cordoba Caliphate and which capital, Qurtuba, competed in beauty with the Great Constantinople (Actually, Istanbul).

I want to give special thanks to Apsara Stock.
