Sharjah Art Foundation presents the Queen of Western Sahara Desert Blues Aziza Brahim and her Tabal Quartet live in Sharjah as part of the Sharjah Biennial 15 Music Programme.
Born and raised in the Saharawi refugee camps lining the frontier between Algeria and Western Sahara, Brahim reflects both the sorrow and the hope of her people in her music. One of her earliest cultural influences was her revolutionary grandmother, Al Khadra Mint Mabrook, known as ‘the poet of the rifle’.
The concert features Aziza Brahim (lead vocals, tabal), Ignasi Cussò (electric guitar), Guillem Aguilar (bass) and Andreu Moreno (percussion).
The Sharjah Biennial 15 Music Programme has been made possible with the generous support of Bank of Sharjah and Sharjah Government Media Bureau.
