Souad Massi

Souad Massi
Pecha kucha participant via video presentation, noon, Saturday, January 12, 2013

Souad Massi is an Algerian musician and songwriter. She finds artistic inspiration in flamenco, gypsy rumba and Congolese music. With her band of 10 years, Souad has released five albums and toured extensively through Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. As an Algerian woman in the spotlight, her path has not been an easy one: fame comes with danger. Early in her career, Souad joined a rock band, and such groups were faced with fundamentalist protests and sometimes violence at performances. At a time when musicians were being targeted for assassination, she was afraid to press her career forward. As she discovered her own voice as a musician, the media became wary and began to censor her. In 1999 she was invited to perform in Paris, making her professional debut in the city that she now calls home. Photo by C. Bellaiche.
