The Musical Heritage of Algeria : Teldja ثلجة








Saadia Bakhouch known as Teldja is an Algerian singer born in Aïn Beïda
on June 12, 1953.

The main merit of this great singer is in contributing to renew and divulge a musical style known as Chaoui belonging to the culture of the Berber people with the same name.

The Chaouis (Amazigh: Icawiyen) are an ethnic group inhabiting the Aurès (Amazigh: ⴰⵡⵔⴰⵙ / Awras), a region located in the north east of Algeria, characterized by a rich history and by the mountain that gives the name to the region.

Teldja proposes a revision of the musical heritage of this region, sometimes reinterpreting it using a classically Arabic orchestration, which still arouses various criticisms by various members of the Algerian Berber community who have always considered arabization as absolute evil.

Very little is known about the biography of this artist whose art has been gradually forgotten.

It seems she have begun to sing at parties and weddings in the early '70s. In 1976 she performed in the city of Ouenza in the company of the folkloric band, generating great appreciation and starting a brilliant but brief career. She has never left her region of origin and has lived between the cities of Annaba and Tebessa, recording several songs among which the best known are: "Ya Salah", "Talaa netsawar" and "Tiri tiri ya teyyara ".

During her career she has collaborated with some of the best Algerian composers including: Rabah Driassa and Mohamed Boulifa.

In 1984 she was invited for an official performance in the city of Constantine, since then the news about her disappears.













 

 



Saadia Bakhouch nota con il nome d’arte di Teldja è una cantante algerina nata nella città di Aïn Beïda il 12 giugno 1953 .

Il merito principale di questa grande interprete sta nell’aver contribuito a rinnovare e divulgare uno stile musicale conosciuto come Chaoui appartenente alla cultura dell’’etnia berbera omonima.

I Chaouis (in lingua amazigh : Icawiyen) sono un gruppo etnico abitante l’Aurès ( in lingua Amazigh : ⴰⵡⵔⴰⵙ / Awras ) , una regione situata all’estremo nord- est dell’Algeria , caratterizzata da una ricca storia e dal massiccio che da il nome alla regione .

Teldja propone una rivisitazione del patrimonio musicale di questa regione a volte reinterpretandolo servendosi di un orchestrazione classicamente araba, fatto che suscita ancor oggi varie critiche da parte di vari esponenti della comunità berbera algerina che hanno sempre considerato l’arabizzazione come un male assoluto .

Pochissimo si conosce della biografia di quest’artista la cui arte è stata gradualmente dimenticata .


Sembra che abbia iniziato a cantare in occasione di feste e matrimoni alll’inizio degli anni’70. Nel 1976 si è esibita nella città di Ouenza in compagnia della banda folcloristica cittadina suscitando grande apprezzamento e dando il via ad una carriera brillante seppur breve . Non si è mai distaccata dalla sua regione di appartenenza rimanendo a vivere tra le città di Annaba e Tebessa , incidendo svariati brani tra i quali i più conosciuti  sono : “ Ya Salah” , “Talaa netsawar” e “ Tiri tiri ya teyyara”.

Nel corso della sua carriera ha collaborato con alcuni dei migliori compositori algerini tra i quali figurano : Rabah Driassa e Mohamed Boulifa.

Nel 1984 è stata invitata per un esibizione ufficiale nella città di Costantina , da allora si sa poco o nulla di lei .
