The Tayfa (meaning more or less "dirty kids" in Berber) experience began in 1992. In July of that year, Kabyle singer Farid Aït-Siameur, living in the small Brittany town of Ploemeur, and percussionist Jacques Moreau, from Quimper, decided to create a group that would represent the encounter of Celt and Berber musical cultures. Since the eighties, both musicians had been trying to create a fusion of these two musical traditions which, on a purely musical level, definitely have a host of points in common, the rhythms and the instruments particularly, but also in their spirit: both venerate tradition and represent a strong cultural identity which has had to struggle to survive.
