Aziza Brahim

Aziza is a politically-charged songwriter originally from Western Sahara. She sings for the visibility of the ongoing conflict in her home country, and for the struggles of refugees in general. Currently based in Barcelona she incorporates a cosmopolitan mix of influences from that city. Such a mix – of Saharawi folk melodies, and rock production – can be heard on “Julud”, a song dedicated to her mother. The song also serves as a symbol of her love and admiration for her people.
