Noureddine Staifi نور الدين سطايفي






Larbi Smati, known under the stage name of Noureddine Staifi, was an Algerian singer born in the town of Aïn Azel on October 26, 1956. The area of ​​the province of Setif (to which the town of Aïn Azel belongs) is known musically to be the home of the Sraoui chant, a particular form of song whose lyrics are based on popular poetry. Noureddine Staifi will become one of the greatest exponents of this musical tradition contributing to its modernization and making it known also outside the Algerian borders.

At the age of four he left the region of Setif to move with his family to Chambéry, a small French town in the Lyonnais area. For several years one of his singing models will be the Algerian singer Rabah Driassa until, around the age of fourteen years old, he will not find his own style. It will be discovered by Amar Hamza, owner of a small record label, which will publish several of his albums and make his music known throughout the French area.

His consecration as a singer will take place with the publication of the song "Salah Konnek salah" (also known as "Ya Salah"). The song will revolutionize modern Algerian music and will make Noureddine Staifi one of its most important protagonists of the 80s.

During the course of his career the singer will interpret both traditional songs and songs of his composition which, at the textual level, will combine traditional themes with poetic elements linked to exile and the nostalgia of his own land.

Nordine Staïfi died prematurely on December 17, 1989 in France at the age of 33 and will be buried in the cemetery of Sidi ElKhier in Setif.

Listen again today many of his songs amaze for modernity and taste. Spreaded many times for Arab Disco, the music of this performer actually hides many surprises. In balance between western pop song and classical modern song of North African area, the music by Noureddine Staifi, in some way, has created a musical model that reinterprets both the Pop of western matrix, orientalizing it and distorting its bases, and the tradition musical from which it comes. Discreetly the author Setif has greatly influenced the music to follow, not only Algerian. this is a merit that I believe should be recognized.










Larbi Smati, conosciuto con il nome d'arte di Noureddine Staifi, è stato un cantante algerino nato nella cittadina di Aïn Azel il 26 ottobre 1956 . L'area della provincia di Setif (alla quale la cittadina di Aïn Azel appartiene) è nota musicalmente per essere la patria del canto Sraoui, una particolare forma di canto i cui testi sono basati sulla poesia popolare. Noureddine Staifi diverrà uno dei massimi esponenti di questa tradizione musicale contribuedo alla sua modernizzazione e facendola conoscere anche al di fuori dei confini algerini.

All'età di quattro anni lasciò la regione di Setif per trasferirisi con la famiglia a Chambéry , cittadina francese dell'area Lionese.Per parecchi anni uno dei suoi modelli canori sarà il cantante Algerino Rabah Driassa fino a che, intorno all'età di quattordici anni,non troverà un suo stile personale. Sarà notato da Amar Hamza, propietario di una piccola etichetta discografica, che lo farà incidere diverse cassette e renderà la sua musica conosciuta in tutta l'area francese.

La sua consacrazione come cantante avverrà con la pubblicazione del brano “Salah Konnek salah” (conosciuta anche con il titolo di “Ya Salah”). La canzone rivoluzionerà la musica moderna algerina e renderà Noureddine Staifi uno dei suoi più importanti protagonisti degli anni'80.


Nel corso della sua carriera il cantante interpreterà sia canzoni tradizionali che brani di sua composizione i quali, a livello testuale, affiancheranno ai temi tradizionali elementi poetici legati all'esilio e alla nostalgia della propria terra.

Nordine Staïfi morira prematuramente il 17 dicembre 1989 in Francia all'età di 33 anni e sarà sepolto nel cimitero di Sidi ElKhier a Setif.


Riascoltate oggi parecchie delle sue canzoni stupiscono per la modernità e il gusto . Spacciata molte volte per Arab Disco, la musica di questo interprete nasconde in realtà molte sorprese. In equilibrio tra canzone pop di stampo occidentale e classica canzone moderna di area nord africana, la musica da Noureddine Staifi , in qualche modo,ha creato un modello musicale che reinterpreta sia il Pop di matrice occidentale, orientalizzandolo e distorcendone le basi, che la tradizione musicale dalla quale proviene. Molto in sordina l'autore si Setif ha influenzato enormemente la musica a seguire, non solo algerina. questo è un merito che credo gli debba essere riconosciuto.

Not only belly dance - 25 albums of Exciting Orientals Tunes / Issue # 4







So much stuff in this new release, there is a bit of everything to tell the truth. As usual, western publications are alternated with Middle Eastern material, excellent albums and less good albums that affect the vast field of music dedicated to belly dancing and, above all, its imaginary consisting of clichés and sensual images. The first prize for the most allusive cover goes to the album "Hanoum Ayse's Belly Dance Music - Authentic Music of Belly Dancers",
on which the player of Qanun dominates, or rather mounts, the beautiful Belly Dancer .... really hilarious.

However, listen well and do not forget to visit the previous releases:

Tanta roba in questa nuova uscita , c'è un po di tutto a dire la verità. Come al solito vengono alternate pubblicazioni occidentali con materiale mediorientale , album ottimi e album meno buoni che interessano il vasto campo della musica dedicata alla danza del ventre e , sopratutto, il suo immaginario costituito da luoghi comuni e immagini sensuali. Il primo premio per la copertina più allusiva va all'album " Hanoum Ayse's Belly Dance Music ‎– Authentic Music Of Belly Dancers", sulla quale  il suonatore di Qanun domina, o meglio monta, la bella danzatrice del ventre....davvero esilarante.

Comunque buon ascolto e non scordate di visitare le precedenti uscite :

Nouara ⵏⵓⴰⵔⴰ








Nouara is the stage name of the singer Cabila Hamizi Zahia. Born in At Buhini (Azazga) on August 15th 1945 she is known by the general public as simply "La Diva", a name that has been attributed to her by Lounès Matoub by virtue of his admiration for the vocal talents of the singer


She began to perform very young on the Algerian radio of cabila expression participating, in 1963, to a children's program directed by Abdelmadjid Bali, in which she sang songs for the little ones and later taking part in the "Music Hall Radio" directed by the musician Taleb Rabah during which she read the mail of the readers and hummed tunes of Abdelmadjid Bali.

From the refrain of one of the songs sung in transmission that said: "Afus afus a LÄenber ay a Nuwwara", the young singer will be inspired by the choice of her stage name.
The quality of her voice soon made her notice and Cherif Kheddam, a poet / musician and her great supporter, entrusted her with many of his music and lyrics, making her the ambassador of music from Cabilia. For her part, Nouara will always have an almost religious admiration for the work of Chérif Kheddam: "He is a great artist, when I sing his music, I do everything to live up to his professional genius" she will say.


Her first record titled " Win i tuzaá yejja-t iruÍ" was published in 1965 and contains a song with Cherif Kheddam. Among the songs in duet with the musician and lyricist, the most memorable are "Nemfaraq ur nxemmem" ("We left ourselves without thinking") and "Ula d nekk yuÄar ad ttuÌ" ("Even for me it is difficult to forget").

Her splendid voice allows her to excel in acewwiq (poetry sung with or without flute accompaniment), which makes up a large part of her repertoire. Among her sources of inspiration there is the singer Ourida (pioneer of the song Amazigh, active in the 50s and 60s) that has always been for her a model for to be imitated.

Equipped with actress skills, and not just as a singer, she also played roles in pièces radio stations of the "Chaîne 2", where she animated, during the seventies, the female transmission "Urar n lxalat".

For the passion used in the work and for the beauty of her voice, Nouara has always had a close relationship with her audience. Starting from 1967 she held many concerts in Algiers, in Cabilia, in Oran and a little throughout Algeria.

After the end of the '80s she only appeared sporadically. In the 90s she also sang with Farid Ferragui and Lounès Matoub . With the latter she was particularly in tune, both for his great professionalism and for the common struggle for the affirmation of the Berber language and culture.



Nouara & Lounes
Together they will record the album "Communion avec la patrie" which contains the song "Hymne a Boudiaf", in memory of the Algerian president assassinated in 1992.

The brutal murder of the singer in 1998 will significantly influence Nouara. She will tell the family that she can not go to his grave because he is still alive for her. "When the phone rings," she says, "I'd like Lounès to call me."

One of her most important concerts took place in Tizi-Ouzou in 1996, where she was applauded by thousands of spectators. The moment she started singing an Acewwiq, the audience got up and applauded for more than 15 minutes. Even the musicians have stopped playing to savor the voice of Nouara. A Channel II reporter told her ironically: "Too bad you're not Warda or Saloua. The power would have increased you (referring to two important Algerian singers very tied to the political system). Nouara replied: "I am happy with myself, I am Berber and I do not need the Algerian power to be valued." Coherently, the singer has always refused official invitations to perform during national holidays.

In 2005 she decided to retire from the scene to return in 2009. On May 26, 2012 she attended the North African Cultural Festival in Montreal to pay tribute to Cherif Kheddam and performed in important concerts at Tizi-Ouzou in 2012 and in Paris in 2014.
















Nouara è il nome d’arte della cantante Cabila Hamizi Zahia .Nata a At Buhini (Azazga) il 15 Agosto 1945 è conosciuta dal grande pubblico semplicemente come “La Diva”, appellativo che le è stato attribuito da
Lounès Matoub  in virtù della sua ammirazione per le doti vocali della cantante.

Dopo il trasferimento della sua famiglia nella Casbah di Algeri, la piccola Zahia era
intenzionata a fare l’infermiera, ma il destino ha voluto diversamente. Già molto giovane ha
cominciato ad esibirsi alla radio algerina di espressione cabila partecipando, nel 1963, ad una trasmissione per ragazzi diretta da Abdelmadjid Bali , nella quale cantava canzonette per i più piccini e in seguito prendendo parte al “Music Hall Radio” diretto dal musicista Taleb Rabah nel corso del quale leggeva la posta dei lettori e canticchiava arie di Abdelmadjid Bali .

Dal ritornello di una delle canzoni cantate in trasmissione che diceva : “Afus afus a LÄenber ay a Nuwwara”, la giovane cantante prenderà spunto per la scelta del suo nome d’arte.
La qualità della sua voce la fece ben presto notare e Cherif Kheddam, poeta/musicista cabilo e suo grande sostenitore, le affidò molte sue musiche e dei suoi testi, facendone l’ambasciatrice della musica cabila. Da parte sua Nouara nutrirà sempre un'ammirazione quasi religiosa per l’opera di Chérif Kheddam: "È un grande artista, quando canto la sua musica, faccio di tutto per essere all'altezza del suo genio professionale" dirà. 



Il suo primo disco, Win i tuzaá yejja-t iruÍ viene pubblicato del 1965 e contiene  anche una canzone  con Cherif Kheddam. Tra le canzoni in duetto con il musicista e paroliere ,  le piu  memorabili sono Nemfaraq ur nxemmem (“Ci siamo lasciati senza riflettere”), Ula d nekk yuÄar ad ttuÌ (“Anche per me è difficile dimenticare”).

La sua splendida voce le permette di eccellere nell’acewwiq (una forma di poesia cantata con o senza accompagnamento), che costituisce una gran parte del suo repertorio. Tra le sue fonti di ispirazione vi è la cantante Ourida (pioniera della canzone Amazigh attiva tra gli anni ‘50 e ‘60 ) che ha sempre costituito per lei un modello da imitare.

Provvista di doti di attrice, e non solo di cantante, ha anche interpretato ruoli nelle pièces
radiofoniche della “Chaîne 2”, dove ha animato, nel corso degli anni Settanta, la trasmissione femminile Urar n lxalat.

Per la passione impiegata nel lavoro e per la bellezza della sua voce, Nouara ha sempre
avuto uno stretto rapporto col suo pubblico. A partire dal 1967 ha tenuto molti concerti a
Algeri, in Cabilia, a Orano e un po’ in tutta l’Algeria.

Dopo la fine degli anni ’80 si è esibita solo sporadicamente. Negli anni ’90 ha cantato anche con Farid Ferragui e
Lounès Matoub . Con quest’ultimo si trovava particolarmente in sintonia, sia per la grande professionalità ,sia per la comune lotta per l’affermazione della lingua e della cultura berbera. Insieme incideranno l’album “ Communion avec la patrie “ che contiene il brano “ Hymne a Boudiaf “ , in ricordo del presidente algerino assassinato nel 1992.

Il brutale assassinio del cantante avvenuto nel 1998 influenzerà considerevolmente Nouara. Confiderà alla famiglia di non poter andare sulla sua tomba perché per lei è ancora in vita . "Quando suona il telefono ” dice “vorrei che fosse Lounès a chiamarmi".


Uno dei suoi più importanti concerti si è tenuto a Tizi-Ouzou 
 nel 1996 , dove è stata applaudita da migliaia di spettatori. Nel momento in cui ha iniziato a cantare un Acewwiq , il pubblico si è alzato e ha applaudito per più di 15 minuti. Anche i musicisti hanno smesso di suonare per assaporare la voce di Nouara . Un reporter di Channel II le disse ironicamente : "Peccato che tu non sia Warda o Saloua. Il potere ti avrebbe accresciuto (riferendosi a due importanti cantanti algerine molto legate al sistema politico ). Nouara rispose : "Sono contenta di me stessa, sono berbera e non ho bisogno del potere algerino per essere valorizzata”. Coerentemente , la cantante ha sempre rifiutato gli inviti ufficiali ad esibirsi nel corso delle festività nazionali algerine.

Nel 2005 ha deciso di ritirarsi dalle scene per tornarvi nel 2009. Il 26 maggio 2012 ha partecipato al Festival culturale del Nord Africa a Montreal per rendere omaggio a Cherif Kheddam e si esibita in importanti concerti a Tizi-Ouzou nel 2012 e a Parigi nel 2014.

Salim Sarwa & Damascus Musical Group سليم سروة  و فرقة دمشق الموسيقية









Born in Damascus on 22 November 1932 Salim Sarwa was a great Syrian musician and composer.

He began his journey in the musical world at the age of 10 under the direction of the Father, the musician and singer Bassil Sarwa originally from Aleppo.

He studied music theory with the professors Abdel Fattah Mansi and Youssef Batrouni, specializing in the art of the Qanoun, introducing the four fingers in the use of the instrument and dedicating himself to the study of the piano.

In 1947 he worked at Radio Gerusalemme and in 1948 he was sent to Radio Jordan based in Ramallah. In 1950, at the death of his father, he was given the opportunity to return home thanks to the offer of a job at Radio Damasco, an offer received by the director of the issuer Ahmed Aissa.

From now on his career will be studded with great successes. At Radio Damasco Salim Sarwa works with emerging singers Wadih El Safi and Fayrouz and dedicates himself to the composition. His first work is the song entitled "Nadia" dedicated to his girlfriend who later became the mother of his four children.

In 1956 he took over the leadership of the Radio Damasco orchestra and in 1959 he gave life to the Damascus National Orchestra. With the opening of the Syrian National Television in 1961 Salim Sarwa gained great visibility thanks to his participation in the musical programs in the newly formed broadcaster.

This period coincides with the Golden Age of the great Syrian musician. From now on the honors and recognitions accumulate. He is appointed director of the Arab musical institute, joins the Association of authors and composers in France and the great Umm Kulthum requires his services.

Over the course of his career the musician composes hundreds of songs following a very personal method of musical work that takes into account both traditional Arabic art and western musical techniques learned at a young age under the guidance of Youssef Batrouni. Each of his works will be broadcast by radios throughout the Arab world.

After years of success, Salim Sarwa died at the age of 78 in 2011 following a long illness. During his last years of life he will undergo an open heart operation following a heart attack and his legs will be amputated due to problems related to diabetes.

He is buried in Bab Sharqi in the damascene district of Bab Touma 
leaving  behind him a great musical legacy, a legacy that makes him one of the greatest musicians in the Arab world.

القانون توءمه، والموسيقا روحه، وهذا المزيج جعل اسم "سليم سروة" علماً من أعلام الفن العربي الأصيل



يقال إن سيدة الغناء العربي "أم كلثوم" لم تكن تطلب عازفاً لينضم إلى فرقتها إلا لأنه موسيقي مبدع وعازف يشهد له، وهو ما حدث مع الفنان والمايسترو "سليم سروة"، فهل قبل العرض؟

مدونة وطن eSyria التقت المايسترو "سليم سروة" بتاريخ 28‏/7‏/2010 وكانت البداية مع الخطوات الأولى إلى الفن، فقال: «أنا حلبي ولدت في دمشق عام 1932، والدي "باسيل سروة" المطرب والملحن وعازف الرق، حرص على تعليمي الموسيقا على يد أكبر عازفي القانون في العالم العربي وهم "محمد عطية"، و"ابراهيم عبد العال"، و"عبدو عوض"، و"عبد الفتاح منسي"، و"محمد عبدو صالح" رئيس فرقة كوكب الشرق "أم كلثوم"»

يعّد "سروة" من أوائل من عمل على استعمال أربعة أصابع للعزف على القانون، بدل إصبعين. وعاش طفولته في جو موسيقي بحت، فاعتاد سماع الموسيقا العذبة، وأراد والده أن يتعلم العزف على آلة القانون وعن سبب ذلك يقول: «يعود اختيار والدي أن أتقن آلة القانون إلى كونه مطرباً، فالمطرب عندما يغني الليالي أي الغناء بكلمة "يا ليل" والمواويل، فإن عازف القانون الذي يرافقه يقوم "بالمحاسبة" على قانونه.. والمحاسبة "اصطلاح فني" يعني أن يقوم عازف القانون بترجمة المقاطع التي يغنيها المطرب، عزفاً على قانونه، فيحاسبه بدقة عن كل مقطع غنائي يغنيه، إلى أن يختم أو ينهي التقاسيم بالقفلة نفسها التي قفل بها المطرب غناءه، وهذا النوع من الغناء يكون في أغلبه ارتجالياً، لذا يبقى عازف القانون تحت تصرف المطرب وقدراته الفنية ومزاجه، ومن هنا ونظراً لأهمية عازف القانون أراد والدي أن أتعلم العزف على هذه الآلة»

درس "سروة" الموسيقا وتخصص بدراسة العزف على القانون ثم تعلم العزف على البيانو على يد الفلسطيني الراحل "يوسف بتروني" قائد الفرقة


الموسيقية الغربية في إذاعة القدس، فعلمه النوتة الموسيقية، ومن ثم أخذ يدرسه العزف على القانون بأسلوب عزف البيانو ويقول في ذلك: «بقيت أتبع هذا الأسلوب في العزف مدة عامين، واستفدت من أسلوب "يوسف بتروني" التعليمي استفادة كبرى، لأن هذا الأسلوب كان مبنياً على قاعدة أساسها العلم الموسيقي الصحيح»

تنقل "سروة" بين إذاعات القدس والإذاعة الأردنية في الفترة الواقعة بين منتصف الأربعينيات وبداية الخمسينيات، لتتوالى أعماله ومؤلفاته الموسيقية وتبلغ ما يقرب 1100 عمل بين لحن غنائي وموسيقي صرف، فغنى له عدد كبير من الفنانين منهم: "صباح فخري، فهد بلان، طوني حنا، كروان، موفق بهجت، شادي جميل، طروب، فؤاد حجازي، سهام شماس، مها الجابري، وداد محمد، سميرة توفيق، هيام يونس، ياسين محمود، حياة الغصيني، سحر، مروان محفوظ، ليلى مطر، فاتن جمال، رفيق سبيعي، جلال سالم، مصطفى نصري، دلال شمالي، محمد غازي"

في عام 1952 قدّم أول لحن لإذاعة دمشق بعنوان "ناديا" وفي هذا يقول "سروة": «تجربتي الأولى في تأليف المقطوعات الموسيقية أهديتها لخطيبتي "ناديا" يوم إعلان خطبتنا، وهي الفتاة التي عشقتها وتزوجتها، هذا الزواج حمل إلي الاستقرار والراحة النفسية بعد عناء طويل، ومهد لي الطريق لأكرس عملي وفني، ومن أعمالي الموسيقية أيضاً أذكر: "زغاريد" - "نزهة" - "كونشرتو القانون". ومن ألحاني الغنائية: "شكوانا إلى أحبابنا طول ليلنا" غناء مها الجابري. "سلو فؤادي" - غناء صباح فخري. "الوعد الكبير" - "الوطن العربي" أوبريت. "ياحبيب الروح" موشح غناه ياسين محمود، "يا أوفى كل البشر" غناء شادي جميل».

كذلك سجل عزفاً منفرداً على القانون بمصاحبة الإيقاع ببراعة متناهية لعدد من المقطوعات الشائعة لغيره من الملحنين منها: "هزي يا نواعم، لولو بلولو، طلعت يا محلا نورها، مرمر زماني 

تفتا هندي، يا مال الشام، قدك المياس، آه يا حلو، عالعزوبية، عالروزانا"

وللدراما كتب قائد "فرقة دمشق الوطنية" العديد من مؤلفات الموسيقا التصويرية منها مسلسلات "الورقة البيضاء" - "ابتسامة جافة" - "ليالي قرطبة" - "فتنة". بينما وضع للسينما موسيقا لفيلمين وثائقيين: "التكية السليمانية" - "آثار سورية" والفيلم الطويل "الصديقان" - لدريد لحام ونهاد قلعي و"عاريات بلا خطيئة" لفهد بلان وإغراء

في العام 1971 تلقى "سروة" عرضاً مميزاً بقي في ذاكرته لا ينساه، يقول عنه: «كان عرضاً من سيدة الغناء العربي "أم كلثوم" لمرافقتها في حفلاتها كعازف، لكن تمسكي بالبقاء في بلدي ومع أسرتي جعلني أعتذر عن قبول العرض الذي كان حلماً يراود أي عازف عاصر كوكب الشرق»

من أجمل ما قيل عن "سروة" أنه موسيقار بأنامل من ذهب، وكان هذا باعتراف موسيقار الأجيال "محمد عبد الوهاب"، ويقول "سروة": «كنت سعيداً جداً عندما عزفت أمام "عبد الوهاب" ورأيته يصفق لي بحرارة، فلا أنسى كلماته عندما قال: أنامله التي أبدعت العزف على القانون كأنها مصنوعة من ذهب»

الباحث الموسيقي "صميم الشريف" تحدث عنه في كتابه "الموسيقا في سورية" بالقول: «وفي واقع الأمر فإن "سليم سروة" الذي لحن في جميع ضروب الأغنية عدا "الدور" لجميع الإذاعات العربية تقريباً عدداً لا يستهان به من الأغاني يزيد على الخمسين والتسعمئة أغنية توزعت بين الاسكتش والأوبريت والقصيدة والموشح والمونولوغ الرومانسي والطقطوقة والأغنية الشعبية والأغنية الدينية والمونولوغ الانتقادي الاجتماعي، والديالوغ والأغنية الوطنية والقومية والنشيد، كان ينطلق في تلحينه من فكره الموسيقي الذي جمع في ثقافته الموسيقية بين فن الأسلاف وورثة الرواد ومعاصريه في الوطن العربي والثقافة الموسيقية الغربية التي تأثر بها من أستاذه "يوسف بتروني" وهذا في مجمله أكسبه  مقدرة فنية ذات خصوصية، وشخصية موسيقية واضحة المعالم يمكن التعرف عليها بالدرجة الأولى من وراء عزفه بالقانون ومن ثم في ألحانه»

أصيب سليم سروة بعد تقاعده عن العمل بأزمة قلبية، دفعته لإجراء عمل جراحي فاشل، ومع ذلك جازف بعمل جراحي آخر لم يكن أفضل منه، كذلك عانى من مرض السكري الذي أنهكه وأدى إلى بتر ساقيه

رحل "سليم سروة" عام 2011 بعد صراع مع المرض عن عمر يناهز 78 عاماً ليوارى الثرى في مقبرة مجمع باب شرقي بباب توما مخلفاً وراءه إرثاً موسيقياً كبيراً وتجربة فنية غنية جعلته من كبار الموسيقيين في العالم العربي
