Pop
The North-African diaspora resonates through the music of Roufaida (27). Inspired by artists like Björk, Fairuz and Aldous Harding, she produces subdued indie pop with guitar, guembri, vintage cassette samples and beats from the Rif mountains, and she sings boldly, but vulnerably in English, Arabic and Tamazight. On stage she creates her open, relatable and intriguing music all by herself, drawing the audience up close. Roufaida has opened for artists like Eefje de Visser, Balthazar and Curtis Harding, and performed at festivals such as Into The Great Wide Open, Motel Mozaïque and Welcome To The Village.
