Fattah Abbou and Mohamed Aoualou, the cofounders of AZA, a California based band, are joining the internationally known musician Brahim Fribgane to present a repertoire of music from North Africa. Their performances are always not to be missed opportunity.
AZA unites traditional Tamazight (Berber) music, indigenous to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, with the global influences of its diverse members. Evocative of Saharan-African blues, yet with an original style that truly defies categorization, AZA’s stirring performances feature deep, danceable rhythms, intricate string melodies, and soaring, soulful vocals. Visually dynamic and engaging performers, AZA has been inspiring international audiences for more than 15 years.
