Mazouni is considered one of the most popular singers of the 1960s and 1970s. He is well known to Algerians living abroad due to his songs about immigration, homesickness, love and country. His hit “Adieu la France, Bonjour l’Algérie” was very successful since it celebrates the independence of Algeria from France. Among his other famous songs are “Allo Allo”, “Azizi”, “Mini Jupe” and “Halte à la Vitesse”.
Mazouni continues to record and perform to this day, and is an important figure in the world of Algerian Kabylie music. His most recent album – as of this posting – was “Mazouni 2007”, which was released in 2007.
