Disco compacto íntegramente dedicado a los cantos de las mujeres saharauis. Las voces de algunas de ellas, como Mariem Hassan, Teita Lebid o Hadhum Abeid, son sencillamente estremecedoras. Transmiten la carga emocional acumulada en todos estos años de sufrimiento.
Más modernas, más alegres, más ligeras, pero no menos interesantes, son las voces de las jóvenes Aziza Brahim, Serguela Abdi o Naha Salec. En un plano intermedio quedan las espléndidas Jeirana Embarec y Faknash Abeid.
Es una grabación respetuosa con la tradición musical. Los instrumentos básicos utilizados son la tindinit, el t´bal y las guitarras, tanto acústica como eléctrica.

The voices of the Saharauis women transmiting the emotional charge accumulated in their many years of suffering in exile. The voices of Mariem Hassan, Teira Lebid and Hadhum Abeid transmit all the acumulated emotions in these years of suffer.
More modern, cheerful and lighter but not less interesting are the young voices of Aziza Brahim, Serguela Abdi and Naha Salec. Between these two groups of women we have such esplendic singers as Embarec and Faknash Abeid.
It is an album that respects their traditional music. The basic instruments used are the tindinit, the t´bal and electric and acustic guitars.

Sur Music, 1998.

[...] Recorded in early 1998 in Sahraui refugee camps in the Algerian desert, A Pesar De Las Heridas (Despite All Wounds) echoes with power, pain, anxiety, strength and beauty of the women's life experience.
Improvised piercing, fluid, meandering vocal lines and gutteral call-and-response sections are driven by percussion (most commonly the kettle drum-like "t'bal") and clapping/thumping. And then you've got the most wild Saharan electric and acoustic guitar or "tidinit" riffs.
Notable amongst many notable tracks are two diverse vocal styles: the soft, winsome charm of Aziza Brahim set against the frankly scary intensity of Mariem Hassan. [...]
