Dear Dance and Music friends!

I hope that everyone is feeling a sense of hope this spring as things seem to be getting better. 

There are several events coming up that you can join in order to lift your spirits and indulge in learning. Within the next few months I will be a part of several lectures and workshops to educate people like you about my culture and dances! 

In less than a month I will be joining Hayet Amar, Souad Asla, and event organizer Esraa Warda in “Un Seul Heros, Le Peuple: Algerian Arts Festival” 

This is a unique online festival with dance workshops, a live concert, and FREE panel discussion by renowned women artists around the Algerian diaspora who embrace people power, revolution in arts, and cultural work as political.

I was recently able to have my article “Images of Algerian Women in Colonial Postcards” republished online and you can find it here:

I am still selling my Music CD, DVD and my tank tops. You can find them under the “souk” tab on my website.

While you are here, follow me on instagram @ameltafsout

Please be safe.

Love and light,
