New Voice of the Sahrawis
I was pleased to hear that Sahrawi singer Aziza Brahim has just finished recording a new album called Mabruk which will be released later this year. Brahim, who was born in a refugee camp in Western Sahara and educated in Cuba before returning to the camps as a young woman, is the new voice of Sahrawi culture and struggle for political freedom. I first heard her music when Andy Morgan, compiler of various North African focussed Rough Guides, selected a track of hers for the Rough Guide to the Music of the Sahara. I am looking forward to the new album but for now here is a clip of her performing on London’s South Bank.
