DJAZIA SATOUR DUO
After the release of her album Aswât (voices), Djazia Satour performed more than 70 concerts in France and abroad. The artist explores the heritage of Algerian music. We recognize in her original compositions her influences: indie folk, groove of the sparkling pop, and traditional genres.
His texts, written by his lyricist, refer to the themes of dispossession, exile and wandering (Ida, Taleb Laman, Chouf Elil). It is a call to memory and love that revives the nostalgia of deserted places and lost people (Souâl, Loun Liyam, Yama Tal). These voices reflect the world’ s tumult, whose “melody of the wind” (Neghmat Erriah) mixes “cries and lamentations”. This is why they speak today in Arabic, the language of all songs.
In 2021, the artist extended the stage adventure of this album with a new show. She chose an intimate and minimalist form. Djazia plays the traditional instrument “the bendir” (NorthAfrican percussion) in duet with her pianist, Pierre-Luc Jamain, co-director of her album.After a few tries in 2019 and the first part of Arthur H’s concert at the Olympia, the duo
decided to continue writing the show.
Press extracts :
“Great crush for the first part entrusted to Djazia Satour. The Algerian singer who lives in France brought, from the first minutes of the evening, a beautiful atmosphere of listening and sharing. Her words in Arabic which tell of exile, wandering, freedom, she interprets them with a very beautiful voice, with warmth and generosity” (Ouest-France – 2019)
