While her name might not immediately spring to mind, slowly but surely Aziza Brahim is blossoming in the UK and people can’t get enough of her infectious style.
Born into the Sahrawi Desert Refugee Camp (1976) and witnessing first hand the despair of her people, Aziza grew up to become one of North Africa’s most lauded voices.
The Singer-songwriter and activist uses her profile to promote the resistance of her people. Her music a blend of folk-fusion and Afro-Latin rhythms brings the listeners attention back to a story once forgotten.
First appearing on Later…with Jools Holland in 2014, Aziza will return to London for a show at the Jazz Cafe – Friday 18th October.
New album Sahari is set for release 15th November.
