Aziza Brahim | Best Artist Nominee 2017 | Songlines

Best Artist

Aziza Brahim
Abbar el Hamada (Glitterbeat)


Born and raised in a desert refugee camp and now resident in Spain, singer Aziza Brahim has become the most potent voice of the dispossessed Saharawi people from the territory now known as ‘Occupied Western Sahara.’ Her relaxed and cool voice creates a striking juxtaposition with the political anger of her lyrics of the songs on Abbar el Hamada. This classy and highly polished set was a Top of the World in #116.
