Aziza Brahim will release a new album on Glitterbeat Records on March 4
The Saharawi singer Aziza Brahim announced that she will be releasing her third album, Abbar el Hamada, this March. The album will arrive two years after her last offering Soutak, which was selected as one of Songlines’ Best Albums of 2014. Recorded in Barcelona over the summer, Abbar el Hamada sees the return of Chris Eckman as producer after his work on her last album, and will continue to spur Brahim’s message of freedom and political defiance.
To mark the announcement, a new song – ‘Calles de Dajla’ – was published on Glitterbeat Records’ SoundCloud; it is available to listen to below.
