Cheikha Remitti

On Air - 2010

The legendary äGrandmother of Ra´ô from Algeria ľ performing live at ôWomen in (E)Motionö Festival, Kulturzentrum Schlachthof, Bremen/Germany, March 21th 1998. With a five-piece ensemble, the septuagenarian Remitti confirmed the magnitude of her historic status as well as her contemporary greatness. More than just a fearless mediator between Algerian musical tradition and the modernist renewal of ra´, Cheikha Remitti embodied the unflinching rebellious spirit of the music with intensity and passion. A hypnotic live recording, praised by critics, featuring an artist who - even after her passing in 2006 - continues to be revered as a great voice of North African music.
