Lemma et Fanfarai Big Band

Founded by the singer and musician Souad Asla, in the company of women from the Western Sahara, the group’s avowed mission is to conserve a rich heritage of nomadic influences. Three generations gather and transmit forms of music that mark the life of the Saoura. Adopting types of music which were once exclusively male – from Diwan to Malhun, from Zeffani to Gnawi, from Hadra to Ferda or else Ahidus – they draw their strength from songs and rhythms coming as much from the slaves of the Empire of Soudan as from Berber and Bedouin tribes.
Founded in 2005, this big band of 12 Franco-Maghrebin musicians allies a brass section with the goblet drum, the oud and the Gnawa guembri. Inspired by Andalusian classical, Gnawa, Berber or Chaabi heritages, their ambition is to revisit the spirit of great traditional festivities
