Songlines returns to the Elgar Room with an evening of music from acclaimed Sahrawi singer-songwriter Aziza Brahim.
Born in an Algerian refugee camp, where her mother had settled after fleeing the Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara, Aziza discovered music was both a source of entertainment and a natural way to express and communicate her personal emotions and thoughts of resistance.
Abbar el Hamada, Aziza Brahim’s second album with Glitterbeat Records and the follow-up to 2014’s Soutak, is a commanding and compassionate musical statement about, and for, the tumultuous age in which we live. After living in exile for more than two decades (first in Cuba and currently in Barcelona), Brahim’s life and music embodies both the tragedies and hopes of the present-day migrant and refugee experience.
