More Info:

Oumniya (my wish) marks the great comeback of Souad Massi, the Algerian cha‚bi-folk icon. This sixth album is decidedly modern, with themes anchored in current events. Algeria, politics, love, freedom and emancipation are all topics that feed this sensitive artist. Massi makes folk music, but she does so with an Algerian mandole, the main instrument of ch‚abi and Kabyle music. A light, melodic folk, balanced with pop, as found in Oumniya, Massi's newest album since Raoui (2001).
