Hello Pianolla friends,
this is my first post here... i really hope you enjoy it...
Actually, I'm introducing someone who's not so new in the scene but only very few have actually heard of...
Souad Massi... everytime I listen to her, my ears go numb with the music, the lyrics and her amazing voice... I have very strong reasons to believe she has the best set of oud and violin players alive!!
So a little bit more about Souad, she's an algerian guitar player/vocalist living in Paris with 3 albums out... DEB, Raoui and Mesk Elil... She also has 2 french duets "Paris" with Marc Lavoine and "Noir et Blanc" with Ismael Lo.
I certainly can't define the best of her albums. Her songs just put me in one of those moods where I'd begin to wonder if the other things in life really matter :)
Here are some of her songs... Enjoy!
