In Fréquences Basses, the bass guitar is the core of the album around which Western, as well as Eastern instruments gravitate. Slim Abida conveys a message of peace, freedom and tolerance ; he praises the diversity of human beings and speaks against uniformity, individualism and all forms of dictatorship. In each track, he raises a new question that can be very personal or universal : is my life true to who I really am? To what extent can I choose my own life path? His music is moved by the urge to enjoy the moment and to embrace life and humanity.
"Lamma" (لمة), which means “a get-together” in Arabic, is a very colorful instrumental album in which the sonorities of the West and the East mingle beautifully. Slim Abida and Nidhal Jaoua composed a cross-cultural dialogue between contemporary jazz and traditional Tunisian music.
This album conveys a message of peace and human reconciliation.
Haydar Hamdi's music emerged during the Jasmine Revolution. With his unique husky voice he delivers engaged lyrics on a fusion of reggae dub and Tunisian traditional groove. Profoundly attached to his roots, he writes and sings about Tunisia, his beloved country, politics and money but also about his dreams and about love relationships. He is considered as the mouthpiece of a whole generation.
