Never miss another 'Aziza Brahim' show
Music And Film From Western Sahara: Aziza Brahim
Aziza Brahim is regarded one of the most talented musical voices from Western Sahara.
She was born in the Saharawi refugee camps, but spent many years studying in Cuba. This influenced her music, an innovative blend of traditional Saharawi hawl, West African rhythms and Latin Jazz.
Singing in Hassania, the native language of her homeland, and Spanish, Aziza has been a fantastic ambassador for the Saharawi cause, dedicating all her singing to her people.
She describes her musical mission and methods as: “I’m not able to separate politics, cultural and personal concerns. So, the focus of my music is all of these areas at the same time. Political, because of its commitment to the denunciation of social injustice. Cultural, because it searches for new musical ideas. Personal, because it expresses the worries of a person that aspires to live with dignity in a better world.”
“Astonishingly timely … Her songs tell of refugees and of walls built to keep out the displaced …. Her band transcend boundaries with ease.” Mojo
