Country Algeria Genres rock jazz traditional fusion /ITHRENE-183986109494 Festival Sauti za Busara 2019 Recordings
NEW TINDI, 2011; EL MAHFEL, 2017
Ithrene hail from Oum El Bouaghi, in the East of Algeria. The group was created in 1992 by four brothers, Rabah, Yazid, Hichem and Mohsen Ferrah, together with friends Aziz Rabia, Zven and Ramzi Khelifi.
Their music is electric in every sense, with sufficient charisma and energy to rock all kinds of audiences. Their lyrics are mostly in Amazigh "chaoui" (Berber language, with an Algerian dialect).
Ithrene have toured regularly across Algeria and France, with one of their most outstanding performances to date at the Institute of the Arab World in Paris. They have released four albums, Imazighen, New Tindi, El Mahfel and El Fouchi.
