Seddik Zebiri is a Berber mandolist and songwriter from the Atlas Mountain, in Algeria. He imigrated to France and later on to London in the early 1980’s where he formed the band Seeds of Creation, in the neigbourhood of Dalston. The band is the reflection of the fusion of his traditional Berber and Gnawa musical influences with other Western contemporary genres such as jazz and blues, creating an electrifying melting pot. The album Hackney Vibes retraces the compositor’s experience in one of the most multicutural neighbourhood in ‘East’ London. Seddik is exploring self-awareness on gender, racial, cultural and political issues that could be lived by all people at all times and all places.
