If you click, at the end of this video on others videos here, you're still in Idir music's world.
Idir was born in Aït Lahcène, a Berber village in Haute-Kabylie, in 1949.
His real name is Hamid Cheriet and his career plans where far from music and close to petrolium, being geologyst. When he first appear on radio Algiers, he sang a lulluby called Avava Inouva (my little father), and nothing on his life back to the same place again. Music consumes human soul and the other way around. This song seems a hymn to Maghreb, Algeria. Avava Inouva was translated to seven languages, as far as we know about it. In 1979, Idir recorded an album called Ay Arrac Negh (to our children) but, no matter people become to crouds about him, he was not satisfied. So, critics say Idir slept for about 10 years before come back again to the land of the sounds and rythms. In 1991, Idir releases an new album compilation, assuming his returning. But his main goals still are supporting diferent causes, like peace, end of starving, life, freedom etc. L'Árgelie la vie is one of the associations on that matter created by him and Khaled.
