World - Released August 23, 2019 | Music Development Company
Oum is the most prominent star of the urban Moroccan scene called Nayda. This release marks her third international release and her fifth overall, for which she pairs with the Palestinian Kamylia Joubran (who also took the mantle of artistic director). On Daba (Now), Oum El Ghaït Ben Essahraoui lyrical waxes about the environment on Chaira (Tree), Ha (Here), and Yabhar (Ocean), and she expresses feminist convictions versus the patriarchy on Kemmy (You); even going so far to bring up violence against migrants on Laji and Temma with a clear and piercing voice. Her singing flows over rhythms combining traditional percussion and bass funk, interacting with jazz horns (bugle, trumpet, saxophone) and a wily oud. Add in a few light atmospheric pads and electronic noises, and you have the mirages of Daba's post-modern desert, strewn with a few contemporary oases. The trip is a contemplative, serious and joyful invitation that never loses its hopeful spark. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz
