Khalid Izri's velvet voice and excellent songs have an almost mythical status in Amazigh culture. As 'voice of the Berbers' he conquered their hearts with his beautiful protest songs. After a long time, Izri will finally return to the Netherlands in 2023, for a unique concert with the Grammy-winning Metropole Orkest.

On Saturday 14 January we will celebrate the Berber New Year with a special concert by multi-instrumentalist Khalid Izri and the Metropole Orkest.Izri draws from the rich Berber tradition for his music and knows how to interweave traditional and modern themes like no other. With his music he resists racism, calls for tolerance and pays tribute to the world, love and freedom. His amazing sense of rhythm and melody, hypnotic performances and unique style have earned him a recognized reputation in the Amazigh world, and a strong following outside of North Africa.

This evening you can discover how this music, which consists of soft and soothing melodies and powerful and impactful lyrics, sounds with the Grammy-winning orchestra during the celebration of the Amazigh New Year.Yennayer, Amazigh New Year, is the beginning of the agricultural year that has been celebrated by the Imazighen (Berbers) in North Africa since ancient times. Amazigh New Year has been celebrated across North Africa for centuries. The traditions differ per country, but the core is the same everywhere: connection with nature and the hope of a good harvest.
