Both inspired and breakthrough with famous predecessors (Tinariwen mainly), the power trio Ezza is bringing touareg music out of the conventional path, mixing rock and blues, African pulse, rhythmic trances and relentless groove. EZZA's desert blues-rock, three-piece dynamic and soul-stirring melodies, and rebellion-fuelled rhythms, produce a more contemporary sound than previously associated with Saharan music.
The desert, Niger (origin country of the singer Omar Adam, now settled in Toulouse, France since 2010) are taking far and high the inspiration of the band. Omar Adam writes and composes focusing on its people, confronted to globalization and modernism, lauding hope, peace, education, love, friendship, dignity and tamasheks values. Led by Omar Adam Goumour, EZZA take a rightful place in the desert-rock pantheon, a neat, propulsive outfit supplying a depth of groove that’s impressive for just a three-piece. Omar is a charismatic leader, his warm, soulful vocals accompanied by some beautifully liquid guitar lines. More impeccable desert sounds to stir your soul.
Child, he immersed himself Tuareg iconic bands such as Tinariwen, Takrist Nakal ... Arriving in France in Toulouse in 2010, he created EZZA with Menad Moussaoui (bass / Algeria) and Sté-phane Gratteau (drums / France). EZZA's songs talk about the Niger and tuareg culture through an hopeful and committed music. "EZZA" is the last letter of the alphabet Tifinagh, and is the symbol of the free man (Amazigh) and resistance.
Ezza is regularly playing festivals and big stages: WOMAD Festival (Malmesbury/ UK), Les Francofolies de la Rochelle (France), Festival PirineosSur - Huesca (Spain), Festival International de la musique Diwann (Alger, Algeria), Festival NsanguNdjiNdji (Pointe Noire, Congo), Festival Nocte-Huesca (Spain), Festival TresCulturas-Murcia (Spain), Festival Tribu - La Vapeur (Dijon, France), Festival des Nomades - M‘Hamid El Ghizlane (Marocco), Ghanafest Malta World Music Festival (Malta), Fremantle Street Art Festival (Australia), World Music Panama (Panama).
