Saharawi Sensation Aziza Brahim to Release Soutak in February 2014 (World Music Central)

Aziza Brahim, one of the leading voices in the Saharawi music scene, will release her new album Soutak on February 10, 2014 on Glitterbeat Records. Aziza is currently based in Spain and her music combines Western Saharan roots with contemporary sounds.
