The Planet of Ahellil

"The Planet of Ahellil" sees Reda Mehenni and a collective of musicians further their AHELLIL project — which began in a 2021 art residency and focused on archival work — by producing an album that aims to promote ahellil, traditional music from Algeria’s Gourara region. The album will serve as a space to make an archive of ahellil music accessible to the wider public with the aim of revitalizing Algerian cultural heritage.
