Maurice El Medioni channel
The Jewish-Algerian pianist from Oran, Maurice El Medioni, has a Youtube channel that I just discovered. There are many gems here: Maurice in concert, Maurice backing Lili Boniche, Blond-Blond, Line Monty, and Reinette L'Oranaise, live footage of Sami El Maghrabi, TV footage of Salim Halali. More to come, no doubt.
Medioni survived a recent stroke. A friend met him and sent me a photo of Maurice a couple days ago, and he looks good. Hopefully he will get back on tour, inshallah with El Gusto.
