Nadia Ammour (p.6-8) is an Algerian woman who, together with her two sisters, created a singing trio called “Tighri Uzar” (“Voice of the Roots”) on October 17, 2009. Singing since childhood and being able to communicate in several languages, they perform traditional Kabyle songs. 10 years ago, after her graduation from Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA), where she studied human resources and then sociology, Mrs. Ammour decided to create her band.
From the very beginning the band members received a lot of help from their manager Fatma, who promoted the band, found the concerts you could’ve sung at and also organised their first meeting with leading figures in Kabyle music. Nadia feels like it’s very important for her to explain their songs to the public, as they are full of symbolism and hidden meanings. Currently the band has 15-20 concerts per year. Nadia’s message says: “When you settle in a city, you must find out about all the cultural institutions that exist there and about their ethics and values. Do you have the same values? Sometimes your art might not fit somewhere everyone politically and ethically. This is a very important issue.”
Thanks to this Unit Nadia will learn more about Ethics in fashion.
