The Lemma ensemble, created under the impetus of Souad Asla, comes from Saoura, the Saharan southern part of Algeria. The music of the Saoura, sometimes slow and languorous, sometimes lively and swaying, remains recognizable by the stripping of its instruments and the place occupied by the body. The voice and the hands remain the principal instruments, to which the percussions are joined. Serious or trivial, the text sings disappointed loves, insomniac watches and torments, the elegies to the Prophet and the invocations of his family. Lemma's women artists have been and will be invited to many festivals in France and Europe.
