Amel Brahim-Djelloul is an Algerian soprano opera singer and concert recitalist. She started her musical studies with the violon before moving on to study singing in Algiers, in 1995 under the tuition of Abdelhamid Belferouni. Following Noelle Barker‘s recommendation, she set off to Paris to continue her studies at the Ecole Nationale de Musique at Montreuil with Frantz Petri and then at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris with Peggy Bouveret and Malcolm Walker, with whom she has since been working. She graduated from the Conservatoire in June 2003. Amel Brahim-Djelloul is proud of her origins and she expresses this pride in her music: the theme of one of her latest CDs was inspired by the Arabian Nights (2007) and for her following CD – entitled ‘Amel sings the Mediterranean‘ (2008), contains musical pieces from the Arabo-Andalusian period which were adapted by her brother violonist Rachid Brahim-Djelloul.

About algerianna

I enjoy writing, well communicating to be more precise as writing is somewhat a solitary activity. I tend to think that life is beautiful and interesting but people tend to over-complicate it. I like thinking about people and societies (netfelssaf like we say in Algerian). Apart from that, am relatively begnin.
