A feminine journey to the heart of the Sub-Saharan desert. In this intimate concert for a trio, Souad Asla and singer-percussionists Sabrina and Aziza share their Gnawa cultural tradition, both religious and secular, from the south of Algeria. These three women reveal a fascinating heritage that took root in Black Africa before spreading throughout the Maghreb, moving from a spiritual ode to trance with wonderful rhythms. These artists bring Bedouin and Berber traditions into resonance with infectious passion.
