We are honoured to invite Western Saharan singer Aziza Brahim to The Jazz Cafe this October.
Born into the Sahrawi Desert Refugee Camp in 1976, her story defies belief and is a testament to her talent and character. Now based in Barcelona, Brahim’s inimitable folk style is lauded all over the world as she promotes the resistance of her people and praises the role of women in the revolution of her homeland.
Her style fuses Saharawi roots with influences as diverse as jazz, rock, Spanish popular music, Afro-Latin rhythms and the blues. On the night, we’ll hear songs from her upcoming album, due to come out on 15th November with Glitterbeat Records.
Opening the night will be remarkable London based afro-dub ensemble Fofoulah.
