It is with deepest sorrow that we have received the passing away of Mbarek
Larbi (NBA n Saghru), who spent all his life in promoting and modernising the Amazigh music of southeast Morocco.
Born in Mellab, a little village in the of the southeastern region of Morocco, M’barek Oularbi, the front man of the group Saghru, discovers his true passion for arts at a young age: Painting, guitar, composition, animation and poetry. His intelligence, his supporting family and the contact to other artists initiate him to advance.
Due to the influence by artists like Mallal, Idir, Bob Dylan and others, he started to compose his first pieces of music. He sang with friends, at school, in the course of cultural activities and finally, at the university.
A few years later, the young artist graduated in French Public Law and Literature and founded the Saghru Band, a fascinating modern band who then created together with Mallal their own unique style, the Amun Style.
On behalf of Agraw.com team and its visitors, we would like to express our deepest condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Mbarek. Your memory will always remain deep within our hearts.
«Your place now is within the stars that continue to shine high in the dark sky…»
