Born in Marrakech in 1978 in a Tuareg family, Salah RADI had a decisive dream at the age of 8, which pushed him to go on an expedition, alone, far from home, to Tagounite, a Moroccan rural commune in the desert. There, he meets a master maalem, guembri player, a traditional three-string instrument from the Gnawa culture. This is his first connection with sacred music, and never again will RADI depart from it.
Over time, this artist multiplies the projects, he sets up groups of traditional musics, plays concerts in the four corners of Morocco etc. Among them, a meeting that leads him to France, in LYON. It’s indeed where RADI creates his own association to promote the world music under the name GNAWA FRANCE.
It was then in 2016 that RADI met the Therapist MANA. Together, they decide to conceptualize a therapy inspired by traditional Gnawa music. This is how this Tuareg uses his gift for music, to heal the deepest ills through small group sessions, in which he tells the story of the instruments of this culture. This same culture that he sings and transmits to his audience.
Rich of his various and atypical experiences, RADI presents today his new single: “CARAMELA”. A summer single led by a music video, shot in MARRAKECH. Watch the music video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nMeRNRUtXM
