Lounis Aït Menguellet was born in 1950 in Ighil Bouammas, in the Djurdjura mountains, close to Tizi Ouzou in Algeria. After singing romantic songs in his early time, he then transformed his creations in philosophical and socio-political topics. His lyrics claim his love for life and freedom as well as express the sadness of an unfair and hypocrite society. A man of his time, he carries with him the oral culture of Kabylie, with fairytales and mythological stories. He composes an extremely rich world, where an unequaled and noble spirit reigns.
