LABESS

The group LABESS, which means « everything is ne » in Arabic, was founded by Nedjim Bouizzoul, singer song-writer of Algerian origin.

It mixes gipsy rumba, flamenco and traditional North-Africa music rhythms, such as gnawa and chaabi music. By singing in Arabic, his mother language, in French or Spanish, Nedjim Bouizzoul tells with his expressive voice histories full of authenticity, mixing realism and hope, gentleness and fury. He sings about exile, telling us about the joys and the distress that punctuate the road from the country of origin to the welcoming country, and vice-versa. Trough his poetry, he proposes a reflection about the cultural diversity and about the necessity to be united, no matter the differences.
