Moh Alileche Ensemble

The leading Bay Area-based Berber bandleader, Moh Alileche invokes the culture of his Algerian homeland with traditional and original songs and instrumentals. Moh writes songs of his people in the folk traditions, as exemplified by his CDs "Tragedy", "The Source of Water", and "North Africa's Destiny?".

Moh's music celebrates the culture he was born into, the Amazigh (pronounced AM-uh-zeer) people (also known colloquially as Berber), who were North Africa's indigenous inhabitants for thousands of years before Islam and Arab conquest, and who still make up one-third of Algeria's population. He grew up in the mountainous Kabylia region east of Algiers, and began playing music as a child with a single-stringed instrument made from an aluminum can. Since moving to the Bay Area in 1990, Moh has shared both his music and culture, neither given much attention in mainstream America. In addition to original compositions, Moh performs reworkings of traditional North African Amazigh songs, mixing instrumentals and vocal numbers on an array of topics.
