Standing out of previous famous tuareg bands, the power trio EZZA transforms and brings the Tuareg music off the usual path, blending, without any concessions, modern rock sounds, African pulse, rhythmic trances and relentless groove. EZZA impresses by their desert blues-rock, rebellion-fuelled rhythms and three-piece dynamic and soul-stirring melodies. They produce a more contemporary sound than previously associated with Saharan music.
Starting from Agadez and Azawad then the world, the Tuareg music has grown with Tinariwen and she now lives with EZZA. Melodies and groove drawn in the desert, a tasty mix of blues, rock, and Tuareg songs... the trio EZZA talks about the Niger, country of singer Omar Adam, through a hopeful and committed music.
"Ezza" is the last letter of the alphabet Tifinagh, and is the symbol of the free man (Amazigh) and resistance. From their second album "Alkher" (Peace) results a modern and universal music but that doesn't betray the essence of traditional music from which it is rooted.
