Ila Mata (Official Video)

Bab L’ Bluz

‘Ila Mata’ is taken from Nayda!, the debut album by Bab L’ Bluz, which will be released on Real World Records on 5th June 2020 digitally, and available on CD/Vinyl from 10th July 2020.

The lyrics are inspired by the Tunisian poet Anis Shoshan, and aim to awaken the sleeping consciousness of a majority of individuals, indoctrinated by racist statements considering some humans superior to others and condemning all the richness that the fact that we are different from each other can bring us. It is also a call to search for what can unite us instead of going towards everything that divides us.
