Sahrawi chanteuse Aziza Brahim with the Basque group Oreka TX performing a song titled Amazigh.
Aziza Brahim is a singer, actress and activist born in the Sahrawi refugee camps of Tindouf. She has a remarkable body of work singing in Spanish and the Hassaniya Arabic of Western Sahara.
Oreka TX play the txalaparta, a percussive instrument whose roots are found in the cider making traditions of the Basque region of Spain. It’s incredibly cool and this is going to be my new obsession.
One might think, how does this even work? Just watch, the music blends together perfectly.
This is from Oreka Tx’s album on World Village: Nömadak Tx.
