Berber songs from the Middle Atlas

Araw N Fazaz group

An evening in the intimacy of a Berber evening, for a rare and subtly embodied repertoire. Originating from the traditional music of the mountainous region of Khenifra (Morocco), the Amazigh Song of the Middle Atlas developed with the musician Hammou Oulyazid from the 1950s onwards. Still largely unknown outside Morocco, its most famous representative is Mohammed Rouicha (1950-2012), an inventive musician and prolific composer, and creator of the emblematic instrument of this music in the 1970s: the large four-string lotar (guembri family).

Younes Baami, a disciple of Mr Rouicha and a young lotar virtuoso, presents original compositions sung in Tamazight (Berber) and Moroccan Arabic with the group Araw N Fazaz (Sons of the Middle Atlas). As is customary, he is accompanied by bendir players and a female singer, as the alternation of male and female voices is one of the fundamental elements of this music. Araw N Fazaz also gives a prominent place to the violin and, more original, to the oud...

Conference/concert presentation

with Léo Fabre-Cartier  

The Amazigh song yesterday and today

Why can we say that the Amazigh Song of the Middle Atlas, which was born barely 70 years ago, is a traditional music? How can we define this aesthetic? How is the practice of this art lived, yesterday and today? What are the notable innovations that have appeared generation after generation of musicians? In what way is this music a way of escaping from one's condition? What role have women played in it? Léo Fabre-Cartier will attempt to answer these questions, in particular through a history of the Amazigh song of the Middle Atlas focusing on some of its main actors (Hammou Oulyazid, Bouzekri Amrane, Mohammed Rouicha).
