The legendary "Grandmother of Raï" from Algeria - performing live at "Women in (E)Motion" Festival, Kulturzentrum Schlachthof, Bremen/Germany, March 21, 1998. With a five-piece ensemble, the septuagenarian Remitti confirmed the magnitude of her historic status as well as her contemporary greatness. More than just a fearless mediator between Algerian musical tradition and the modernist renewal of raï, Cheikha Remitti embodied the unflinching rebellious spirit of the music with intensity and passion. A hypnotic live recording, praised by critics, featuring an artist who - even after her passing in 2006 - continues to be revered as a great voice of North African music.
