This film documents the life of Sheikh Sabri Mudallal who was considered the last of the Masters of Tarab reciting in Aleppo. The troupe, which he established, is considered as an oriental orchestra that maintained singing and reciting in its most originality and purity, as far as singing, music processing, and used instruments are concerned.
According to Mudallal, this kind of singing was connected with the loyalty to the traditions of singing and the preservation of the classical school of singing in Aleppo which is considered as one of the main schools in oriental music. Although this school was based on religious reciting, many masters have revived and developed its basics at the beginning of this century, among them were Sheikh Ali Darwish, Omar Al Batch, and Bakri Al Kurdi.
