Short description:

Recordings in this collection can be played by anyone.

Portraits of Saharawi Music is the result of six months of ethnographic fieldwork in Saharawi refugee camps, in south-west Algeria, during 2013 and 2014. The collection includes a variety of music recordings with the aim of showcasing the rich cultural heritage of the Saharawi community living in exile since 1975, when they were forced out of their homeland, Western Sahara. Known as Africa's last colony, the Saharawi’s land is to this day still occupied by Morocco and pending decolonisation.
