These all photos I have shot during Womad Abu Dhabi 2009.
Souad Massi’s music crosses over from Arabic to European, from jazz to rock, from folk to traditional. Her compositions, which prominently feature the acoustic guitar, display Western musical influences, but also incorporate oriental instruments like the Oud. Singing in multiple languages, Souad creates rich, varied nuances, which shine with hypersensitivity and sincerity. (Content from Womad Abu Dhabi 2009 Festival Guide)
