Houria Aïchi

Houria Aïchi – Algerien

In her songs, Houria Aïchi addresses her homecountry, the unfamiliar and foreignness – highly topical issues in the musical language of the Berbers. Although her art originates in the oral tradition of her homecountry (she was taught singing by her grandmother); her voice neither belongs to the cultural tradition nor to modern ages. In fact, it does belong to both worlds. Houria Aïchi lives anywhere in an interim-world, somewhere between the cosmopolitan Paris and the rural areas of Algeria. She and her band L‘Hijâz’Car play contemporary Jazz and rock rhythms on a bass clarinet and the Oud, a short–necked giutar.
