AMH's bio

The meeting that led to success .

AMH stands for Art Mur Hostile (Art Hostil Wall), a band formed by Zak, Dj Badri and Mamouth. The band, performing by dialectal Arabic and French, has one main goal: return Algerian Rap to his golden age. Mamouth defines himself as a prehistoric rapper. He grew up in Algeria and discovered rap music and writing there. It’s his meeting with Zak, then DJ Badri that led to the foundation of AMH. Zak lived in Senegal in the late eighties. There, he discovered Reggae music and rap by listening to cassettes recorded by Radio Nova.

He’d also formed in Senegal a band called DMC’S 75 which was quite popular at the time. In 1989, he joined TROUBLE MC band. The band was formed by Baba Maal, Super Diamono, Youssou N’dour and Rapsonic Groupe. He, then, returned to Algeria to do his military service and there the concept of AMH has seen the day. A moment after the formation of the band, the three members met the president of a French association, “Mouvement de la paix” (Peace Movement), who was in a searching mission to find artists in every field (painting, Theater, literature, Choral singing and modern music).

for an on-stage performance. The band released in Algeria its first Album “Almi almek » (My pain is your pain). The album found a quick success. The Album was recorded in Rennes by the help of « Les Jardins Modernes » Association. The band performed concert after concert, performing with bands like Gnawa Diffusion, ONB and Assassins in “Quartiers d’été” Festival in Rennes. And Kerry James in Nantes hip hop festival.

After that, AMH forged links and collaborated with some Algerian bands, including MBS and Youcef Darkman, an ex-member of Intik. The departure of Zak to Canada marked a momentary end for the formation. The three members are moving now solo, and each one in a different country, Zak in Quebec. Mamouth in France, Algeria and Canada. And Dj Badri in Algeria. There is still a chance that these three gifted artists would gather for another album.
