Read more
El Hadj Said Berrada is a Moroccan artist and master of the traditional music born in the city of Fez in 1954.

He is considered as the main master of the Issawas community which got its name from the founding father Mohamed Ben Aissa. The Issawas are a religious chants group that belongs to Soufism. They usually practice music as a therapy art.

Remaining under the influence of the same family of categories, El Hadj Said is also one of the best masters who perform the “Hadhra” chant. The latter is normally performed for the purpose of getting rid of sufferings through the beats, the collective singing and the moves, which makes it a kind of Soufism.

Between 1980 and 1994, he took his music to an international level, to participate in many European and Arab festivals. In fact, he is the first artist to introduce the Hadhra on stage abroad.

El Hadj Said’s albums are mostly released in tapes by the labels Fassiphone, FesMaatic, and distributed by Harmonia Moundi.

He is one of the best Soufi art representatives in the world. His concert in the Arab institute of Paris is unforgettable.
