Lounis Ait Menguellet

D’ Yves Billon

Synopsis

Ait Menguellet is undoubtedly the greatest living poet and singer in Kabylia (Algeria) today. This film, which has the form of a a poetic but austere musical video, illustrated with pictur recalling the rural and colourful side of Kabylia, is like a kind of tale. Menguellet and his musicians interpret their poems and songs as if they were telling a story. They are only interrupted by the frequent applause and dances of a devoted audience who sing in chorus the most popular themes.
