Biography

——————————————————
French
——————————————————
musicien Amazigh (berbère), Khalid Yachou (1969, nom d’artiste Khalid Izri) est né à Melilla, enclave espagnole du nord du Maroc.

En tant que berbère dans une région de langue hispanique, il lutte pour son identité. Via son oncle, il se familiarise avec la musique berbère et commence à s’intéresser de plus en plus à sa propre culture. Il s’applique à la guitare, l’harmonica, et les percussions et imite dans un premier temps le répertoire d’icônes comme Idir, Djurdjura, Jamal Allam ou le moins connu poète-musicien Whalid Mimoun, enfermé pendant deux ans pour avoir enregistré son premier album en Berbère.

La musique de Khalid Izri puise ses racines dans les traditions berbères, mais est clairement influencée aussi par les musiques africaines et méditerranéennes. Elle se caractérise par de grandes variations rythmiques et mélodiques. Si Izri joue de la guitare, de la flûte et des percussions, c’est indéniablement sa voix impressionnante qui révèle sa force.

Amazigh (Berber) musician, Khalid Yachou (1969, name of artist Khalid Izri) was born in Melilla, wedges Spanish north of Morocco. As Berber in a Hispanic area of language, it fights for its identity. Via his uncle, it is familiarized with the Berber music and starts to be interested more and more in its own culture. It applies to the guitar, the harmonica, and the percussions and initially imitates the repertory of icons like Idir, Djurdjura, Jamal Allam or the the least known poet-musician Whalid Mimoun, locked up during two years to have recorded its first album into Berber. The music of Khalid Izri draws its roots in the Berber traditions, but is clearly influenced also by the African and Mediterranean musics. It is characterized by great rhythmic and melody variations. If Izri plays of the guitar, the flute and the percussions, these is unquestionably the impressive voice which reveals its force.
