Souad Massi

At the Cabaret Sauvage, Souad Massi, a young Algerian artist, made her singing début in Paris on January 10th, 1999. The audience, dazzled by the brilliant apparition before them, was stunned. People scrambled to describe what they had witnessed, many resorting to futile attempts at pigeonholing the Algerian nightingale. Some likened her to the divas of folk-rock, Tracey Chapman, Joni Mitchell, and others. For a world music artist with this kind of uniqueness, however, such comparisons never quite do the trick.
