Spotlight On Mourad Sid : Keeping the Jermouni beat alive

A new rising star in the shawi musical scene. His name is Mourad Sid from the region of Oum el Bouaghi. His trademark is his amazing voice. His voice is unmistakably jermouni. Many singers tried to imitated Jermouni, but NO ONE does Jermouni like Mourad!
His new album is in the process of being produced. It will hit the market soon. Mourad lives in Oum el Bouaghi.

Here is Mourad doing ekkered en nuguir, a timeless jermounite, in which Aissa imortalized lmass3ud u Zalmad. Mourad does the song the jermouni way, then he picks up the tempo and does it his way.
Enjoy, ekkered en nuguir song1
