Sirat Bani Hilal Digital Archive

 Sirat Bani Hilal Digital Archive
"The Sirat Bani Hilal Digital Archive is designed as an open access resource for the preservation and dissemination of audio recordings, written texts, photographic images and other materials related to the “Epic of the Bani Hilal tribe” (Arabic: Sīrat Banī Hilāl سيرة بني هلال ). The site is dedicated to the epic singers of al-Bakātūsh (Egypt) for their willingness to share their knowledge and performances of this thousand-year-old epic poem."
The Archive was created and is maintained with support of the American Council of Learned Societies and the University of California, Santa Barbara.
