Aziza Brahim (Western Sahara)

Songs from exile

Born and raised in the Saharawi refugee camps, the great singer Aziza Brahim’s life has been marked by both daunting hardship and inspired determination.

Her grandmother was a famous Saharawi poet, her mother well-known as a vocalist, and they passed their strength and fearlessness to her. The refugee camp was the place that formed her. It lives in her every heartbeat, she has stated. Now, as one of the most lauded North-African singers, Brahim uses her position to make the plight of her people known - and of the refugees across the world.

Now, she lives and makes music in Spain. Her newest album is called Mawja, and was released earlier this year on Glitterbeat. Produced by Brahim and her long-time collaborator Guillem Aguilar, it is fashioned from a simple, but powerful palette: Saharan and Iberian percussions, mixed with stately guitars and warm bass. 

A magnetic stage personality, she has played everywhere from Le Guess Who and Reeperbahn Festival to Royal Albert Hall – and this autumn, she will play at Oslo World.
