R.I.P. Cherif Kheddam

This is a quick post to give tribute to one of the most important Kabyle singers, Cherif Kheddam (a longer biography here in Kabyle), who passed away yesterday at the age of 85.

I had shared one of his songs here, and today I am sharing another one where he praises my home town, Bejaia (Vgayeth).

Those who want to know more about the artist could read Tassadit Yacine‘s book “Cherif Kheddam ou l’amour de l’art”.

May he rest in peace.

Those accompanying Kheddam in the song are some famous Kabyle singers.
