When Souad Asla takes to the stage, she brings all the sounds of the Sahara desert with her. An enchanting atmosphere, combining music, dance, trance, singing and percussion... Hailing from Béchar, Souad is an artist of the new generation in southern Algeria and an heir to the Gnawa tradition. Brimming with talent and humanity, she invites us to experience the rhythms and songs of the Algerian Sahara, and a fascinating musical and spiritual heritage, which took root in sub-Saharan Africa before spreading throughout the Maghreb.
