ALGIERS – Algerian Kabyle singer Lounis Ait Menguellet announced Wednesday in Algiers two concerts in June in Algiers and a national tour during the holy month of fasting Ramadan.
During a press conference devoted to the presentation of its latest opus "Isefra’’ (poems), the artist said that he will give two concerts at Ibn Khaldoun Hall in Algiers, on 13 and 14 June, and a national tour during Ramadan, without giving dates and places of the performances.
