Aziza Brahim is an iconic voice for the Sahrawi people. Since the departure of Spanish colonists in 1975, this community from the Western Sahara has claimed the tenure of land which is also contested by Morocco and Algeria. It’s a conflict which has led to thousands of Sahrawis being pushed into exile. For a long time, Aziza Brahim lived in a camp in the Algerian desert, expressing her sadness, anger and nostalgia through music as a result of this uprooting. Nowadays, she lives in Barcelona where she met the singer and anti-globalisation activist Amparo Sanchez (Amparanoia), who was heavily involved in the production of Sahari. The pounding rhythms from the traditional tabal drum are intertwined with electronic percussion and drum sets. Guitars, keyboards and brass instruments send the listener on a harmonious transcontinental journey with haunting melodies inspired by the desert.

Western technology is here to amplify the strength of Aziza Brahim’s voice and the expression of her message. The introductory song is a plea for peace, accompanied only by tabals (Cuatro Proverbios). The more pop-sounding Hada Jil touches on the integrity of the demands of the younger generation; Brahim questions the disappearance of her conscience on the reggae-infused Las Huellas, featuring Amparo Sanchez. Ard el Hub is written by her fellow countryman Zaim Alal, describing the darkness of exile, and on the ultimate Ahlami, accompanied by her faithful percussion and a guitar, she names all the places in her homeland she can now only visit in her dreams, but which she evokes so admirably over the course of this astonishingly well executed Sahari. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Bob Marley’s Unfinished Trilogy

It was precisely 40 years ago that Bob Marley released his final album, Uprising, the climax to his political trilogy (with Survival and Confrontation) that was left unfinished after Marley was taken by cancer in 1981. Let us look back at this Jamaican prophet’s shift towards militarism during his last three years on Earth.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.
