DJMAWI AFRICA

​​​​​​​La scène de la Plage

Algeria
It was back in 2004, during a student concert, that Djmawi Africa took shape: Djamil and his guitar, Fethi and his violin, Zouhir and his derbouka, Abdou on electric guitar, Mehdi on percussion and Karim on bass. Percussionist Lamine, drummer Moh and clarinettist/saxophonist M’hamed joined the group later on. Together they offer audiences joyful performances, proclaiming a single idea: the African origins of Algeria. The group has since gone through a few changes: Nazim Ziad is behind the drums today. The most significant change came in 2016, when Djamil left to pursue a solo career. At that time, the group took on singer Issem Bosli, who brought with him new musical influences. The eight musicians are indeed steeped in different musical styles: from chaabi to rock, by way of classical, reggae, heavy metal, and at the heart of all of this, Gnaoua music. An explosive mix that lends all its richness and finesse to their music, marked both by their culture and an invigorating freshness. For over thirteen years, they have appeared onstage around the world, and are recognised as pioneers of the Algerian musical revival.
