Plongé dans une atmosphère cabaret des années 30, un spectacle très vintage et très glamour. Des standards de la musique jazz sont revisités et remis au gout du jour avec une mise en scène à la fois drôle et poétique.

Divinas est leur nom, elles sont espagnoles, talentueuses et gracieuses, mêlant chant, danse et jeu de scène.

Accompagnée de leurs musiciens, elles étaient à la villa des arts de Rabat dans le cadre de l’initiative Jazz Cervantes de l’institut Espagnol.

ChocoLat ! est un spectacle musical très réussi, son passage Rbati a été largement ovationné par le public.

Un moment de pur jazz retro où sensualité, légèreté et magie du spectacle ont opéré.

Quelques extraits de ChocoLat!

Music is generally not made to be talked about but to be heard. I know that before sharing this amazing Moroccan Jewish music heritage, I need at least to introduce some historical facts.

The Moroccan jewish music finds its roots in medieval Andalusian centuries. Andalusia by the time was a land of sciences, letters & arts. Arabs, Berbers, Europeans, Jews, Muslims & Christians, with tolerance & cohabitation, made a perfect atmosphere for creation. The Andalusian life style was born.

The specific Andalusian music was a mix of Sephardic Jewish, Arab, Berber & medieval European music. The particular magical sound.

By the end of Arabo-Muslim presence in Andalusia & the different waves of migrations of thousands of Jews & Muslims to North Africa & the rest of the Middle East, the Andalusian music no longer existed. Fortunately, this huge & rich Musical heritage was transmitted essentially to Morocco & extended to Algeria & Tunisia.

The Moroccan Jewsih music is a mix of Ladino romances of the North of Morocco, the classical Andalusian music & religious poems & chants called “Piyutim”. This music is not only exclusive to the Moroccan Jews but all the Moroccan people consider it as theirs.

In Morocco this music tradition found a very fertile land to develop, becoming a popular folklore every Moroccan family loved, protected, enriched & transmitted.

Very considerate efforts are made nowadays in Morocco, by the state government, the media & cultural institutions to protect this rich Musical heritage. Associations & festivals are created all over Morocco, & Local artists such as Ba Jeddoub & Abderrahim Souiri became world wide ambassadors of this Moroccan tradition.

We must not forget Abdelssadek Shekara , Abdelkarim Raiss, Zahra El Fassiya, Samy El Maghreby, Pinhass Cohen, Haim Look & many many more Moroccan artists who did & still contribute to make this music more close to people & more international.

The Andalusian Orchestra of Israel’s job needs to be highlighted also, because of the quality effort of modernization they’re doing on this music.

Now Let the Music take place ...

North of Morocco Ladino Romance - Mohamed Reda - A Lalla Yellali - آ لالا يلالي

أغنية رائعة بعنوان "كنت عزري" من الثرات اليهودي المغربي تشيد بحياة العزوبية

 إهداء خاص إلى كل المتزوجين الساخطين على حالهم

 فكما يقول المثل المغربي : الزواج و الموت هم لا يفوت

...كلنا لها   

La jeunesse Marocaine a de l'humour ! Laissez ces jeunes nous faire les programmes du Ramadan et tout ira bien !!

Azis is a Bulgarian superstar, a very controversial pop singer and a dazzling personage.His sense of extravaganza in fashion and music federated fans not only in Bulgaria or the Balkans but all over the world.

Besides his huge musical talent, his magnificent voice, his extreme intelligence and his particular lifestyle, Azis is also known for his controversial music videos due to very explicit sexual "mise en scène".

Azis started his career singing Bulgarian Chalga (local pop/folk) and released his first album "Болка" (pain) in 1999. Azis is now one of the most influential Bulgarian celebrities of all times, counting about 15 albums, the latest was released this year "Gadna Poroda".

Lately Azis have been compared to Lady Gaga! I find it so unfair, since Azis existed long before Gaga. He was a super star in his country and all over the Balkans, even before Gaga had the idea to sing a note. and if we had to compare here,  it’s lady Gaga who might have been influenced by Azis I must say !!

The drag queen look is one of the particular signs of Azis. When I discovered him a few years ago, I was convinced that he was a girl trapped in a boy’s body. But when I knew that his role model was Zeki Muren the Turkish Music icon, it made it all clear.

Azis’s Music is a mix of modernized Bulgarian pop/folk and world music. Romano-Tzigani (gipsy) music is the main signature of most of his albums, but Indian, Turkish & Arabic music is very present as well.

Azis was given a very unique voice by mother nature, he is one of the best male voices in the world, his vocal abilities can stun any musical expert. The diversity of his music & the evolution of his visual identity make Azis one of the most followed performers all over the world.

Confession Full Stop

I just love Azis, the voice, the music, the attitude, & I deeply believe that if we had the chance to meet, he’d be the Gay Best friend I’ve always dreamed to have. 

announced in May 2011 SuperHeavy is the "Collaboration of the Year" with names such as Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, A.R Rahman, Dave Stewart & Damien Marley we expect the result to be a Music Revolution !!

with their first single "Miracle Worker" we discovered a very whateverologically Ordinary music release ! i was disappointed by the music, by the video Everything !! i probably set my expectations high. i don't know what to think about the project, i prefer to give SuperHeavy a second chance. who knows?! with the upcoming titles i'd probably like the album !! well no more blablabla... let the music take place & judge by yourself ! cheers !!

one of the Best Videos ever made in the Music industry ... but why censoring ?! 

Ya Mina de Hakim Salhi (le Michael Jackson Algérien) le Hit Rai des années 80.

Une chanson qui me rappelle mon enfance, le doux parfum de ma ville natale et l’insouciance du temps où je chantais et dansais la cuillère, le peigne ou le stylo à la main.

Je me rappelle si bien avoir tant aimé être l’une de ces magnifiques danseuses aux combinaisons colorées.

Ya Mina passait en boucle sur la première chaine marocaine et animait mes goutés en famille et mes journées de vacances, je la connaissais par cœur.

Je me rappelle surtout du clip tourné en front de mer, de cette mélodie si particulière, de cette chorégraphie au nec plus ultra de l’époque, de ces danseuses en rose fluo et épaulettes et de Hakim Salhi qui bougeait partout.

J’ai eu du mal à retrouver la vidéo de mon enfance, mais j’ai trouvé deux versions très intéressantes : la première étant le clip officiel de Ya Mina et la seconde étant un plateau télé où les danseuses sont habillées exactement comme dans mon souvenir

Après visionnage des vidéos, le sourire aux lèvres, il ne me reste plus qu’une chose à dire... Merci Hakim Salhi !

Un Big Up pour l’initiative, un Big Up aussi pour le coup de gueule ! on en a toutes marre du très vulgaire et irrespectueux  "Pssssst, 7biba, Koulek zebda w m'nin nebda ...".

Un phénomène social bien réel au Maroc et qui ne fait que s’aggraver, une initiative telle que celle de Women-Shoufouch est plus que nécessaire pour entamer un vrai travail de sensibilisation.

Bref, je souhaite à toutes celles et ceux derrière le projet SlutWalk Morocco/Women-Shoufouch un très bon début et surtout une très bonne continuation.
