Yemen Folk Music in the Streets of Taizz

I was walking the streets of Taizz in Yemen, when suddenly this musician stops and offers to play a tune for me, as Yemenis gather around and watch.

This Yemeni music video is raw and unfiltered – recorded live on a SD-tape camcorder.

Another brilliant example of beautiful Yemen – before the current civil war + if ever – god forbid, mass tourism.
