Noura BandOn 18 July the Mauritanian singer Noura Mint Seymali she performed in El Cairo, El-Geneina Theatre. It was the first time for an artist from Mauritania.

“Since 2004,” said Nora to magazine Ahram Online, “I started to mix two types of music: Western and Eastern Africa”, in order to spread the Mauritanian musical culture around the world and draw attention of a diverse audience. Nora has already performed in international contexts, such as the Festival au Desert in Mali, the Festival Pyrenees in Spain, and the Festival Timitar in Morocco. In the coming months expect a performance at the Francophone Festival in France and, above all, a tour in the United States, where she will remain until the end of the year.

Like many artists of world music, Seymali combines many genres of music, taking elements from diverse musical cultures, such as reggae, blues, hip hop and zouk, a mixture of African, Caribbean and European styles widespread, in the early eighties, in West and Francophone Africa, as well as in Latin America. Besides the artistic aspects in the Seymali draft flow, of course, elements of a political nature. These include, for example, references to the role of women in Islamic societies, the problem of desertification, terrorism, economic development and so on.
