selected world voices

Listen to the world, it is open…

As a child, I was once exposed a trio of Kabylian voices named after a range in the Atlas Mountains, Djurjura. I must confess it was a time when home was unafraid of other cultures… Although very little can be found on YouTube, their magic still shine on this link: Djurjura 
Later in life, I discovered Khaled, notably in duet with Brittany’s great bard, Alan Stivell, on one of his albums, Douar,  but also love Khaled in French, and Aicha still remains a favourite Aicha … But then again Alan Stivell with Youssou N’Dour A United Earth Part 1 …Funny how a legacy of colonisation twangs like a rubberband… I treasure their voices.
And now I’m wandering further away eastwards,  other  world voices are reaching my heart.
Here is once at the following links: zakarya – best love song and Tara Jaff from Choman’s world 🙂
