about

Osas-It's time: Acoustic Desertblues at its finest! A mature musician. 15 years of international music career: Anivolla is a wanderer between the worlds. Analytically he observes social changes both here and there and deals with it artistically. Blues lovers will get what they are waiting for: Strong voice, biting plucked blues with natural distortions, bass groove and trance beats. Anivolla dominates the broad register of the genre. Strong and and expressive lyrics: In addition to romantic memories of the beauty of the desert, he sings mainly of isolation, flight, interests and change of his home-the invincible Sahara.Alhousseini Mohamed Anivolla: vocals, guitar, percussion

Track Name: Tamejaradetine
Speak out, my friends, about the truth.
The truth is the future, truth is life.
Speak of truth.
Lies don’t last long, they lead to nothing.
They don’t help you, they don’t take you anywhere.
Because the truth is white as blank paper!
Do not follow your illusions! Be realistic.
Lies are brutal and dark.
The truth, on the other hand, is honest as the morning light.
That is a real life.
Track Name: Chet Azawad
They run, they are wandering, all around
The women with their children, the elderly, the population of Azawad.
And they only want one thing: to live, to survive.
And you are everywhere, confused, disunited, running after your enemies.
You think you are fighting for the cause, but who suffers - the women, the children, the elderly.
How long must this go on?
When will you finally understand?
Track Name: Awadid Nogaze
My friends, where are the traditions
Kaocen and Firhun left us?
You know their value! We have shared everything:
We have shared water from the same well,
We shared food with the same spoon,
We drank milk from the same cup. We have passed our dishes around.
Where are these traditions going? These days everybody only thinks about themselves!
All the great traditions have disappeared - but why?
You, who say you care for respect,
Who say you always follow our traditions,
I’m asking you – where has the respect between you and others gone?
Everything has disappeared – but why?
Track Name: Osas
It is time for us to find peace.
It is time for us to have laws to protect us.
The time for injustice has passed!
We also have the right to safety.
We also want to live in peace.
Do we have this? Does this exist?
Track Name: Isouwad
God is watching
Everything you do.
But know this - if you do something good, you do it for yourself.
If you do something bad, then you do it for yourself as well!
Track Name: Aratan N´Afrekea
Children of Africa. It is enough that we should stop cheating ourselves. When we agreed to learn the language of our colonisers, we lost ourselves. We lost of our strength. We lost our values. And what did we gain with this new language? What did it give us? All it did was divide us and keep us away from each other. Where is the solidary we once had? We need to rely on ourselves again! Only our own identity can give us strength.
Track Name: Asalam
Peace be with you
You, Amazigh, wherever you are.
It is time you understand that it’s not the wind that brings peace.
Peace only comes with real ideas and rules, formulated together, and respected by all.
Hollow words won’t bring results.
Do things as the traditions have taught you .
Respect and good values are part of your culture!
Then we will find peace.
Track Name: Algher
It was on a 24th that the brothers and cousins of my country
Finally signed up for peace.
We hope, we pray to Allah that peace will be preserved.
Because we need peace to live together in safety.
Children of this country protect the peace!
Track Name: Idinete
God is watching
Everything you do.
But know this - if you do something good, you do it for yourself.
If you do something bad, then you do it for yourself as well!
Track Name: Toumast Enkere
You people are so gullible, so blind!
You believe anyone who comes and tells you he’s on your side!
Can’t you see what he’s doing? He’s trying to distract you, to play you against each other.
Don’t forget - you belong together!
