Areski Belkacem and Brigitte Fontaine met in 1969 on a play project and, shortly after, on the album Comme à la Radio, which Belkacem entirely wrote.
Between 1973 and 1980, they released five albums as a duo, produced in very different conditions, sometimes with very little means, which constitute a vast playground for experimentation.
Belkacem and Fontaine make a music that strolls and hums in the forest, in an empty subway at night, under the plane trees on the village square.
A lively music, informed by gigantic repertoires of traditional, popular, folkloric music, but which held up the guardian of the museum, to be able to escape, go out in the sun and keep on moving.
Belkacem and Fontaine are still collaborating today.
