Aziza’s new album Soutak (“Your Voice”) is her first recording to predominantly focus on the cadence of her majestic voice and the soulful critique of her lyrics.

“Feeling the need to make an acoustic record, I imagined a somewhat modest musical outline, which would not involve too many instruments and in which the voices would take the expressive emotional lead. I wanted to further explore the range of possibilities found in the Haul, the Saharawi’s traditional rhythmic sources, played on the tabal and a source of inspiration for the Desert Blues.”
