After having successfully promoted the Rifian music in Europe, Khalid Izri, for the first time in the career of the artist, is going to cross the Atlantic sea towards the United Stated in April 2012 to perform two concerts in Los Angeles and New York.
The concerts of Los Angeles are programmed in the fourth edition of the Los Angeles Amazigh Film Festival on the 21st and 22th of April, 2012. This event is organized by the Amazigh Cultural Association in America, (A.C.A.A.) and the Tazzla Institute for Cultural Diversity of Burbank, Ca.
The third concert will take place in the United Nations building in New York on at 5 p.m April 27th, 2012.
Culture, roots and identity are the key concepts in the songs of the Amazigh singer Khalid Izri. His impressive voice is devoted entirely to Berber traditions. He performs both gentle and powerful songs on such themes as immigration, the status of women and the contradictions in society, but at the same time he of course also defends his own Amazigh culture and condemns the injustices done to the Moroccan Berbers. Khalid Izri’s velvety voice and outstanding songs have given him almost mythical status in the Amazigh culture.
