New single & video: Sabrina Bellaouel – WDNTBE
“We Don’t Need To Be Enemies is a music of struggle, where each composition deals with issues related to sex, gender, societies or identity”
Imagined as a celebration of her Berber origins and of women around the world, the video delivers a powerful message mixing electronic music and oriental inspirations, embodied by the bewitching voice of the French-Algerian singer. The hypnotic feeling is intensified by the hyper aesthetic black and white visuals directed by Dorian PRS, with archival images of traditional Berber dances in the background.
“It’s our Algerian common origins and liking for the aesthetics of old Egyptian and Lebanese movies that drove our inspiration on this video. The images are taken from feature films and animation archives that illustrate the passionate story of Kaïs and Leïla in Arabic literature: two lovers who are opposed in substance, but bound forever by their souls. It’s a modern vision of our childhood memories and a tribute to these two protagonists whose story is close to William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet: infinitely beautiful, infinitely dramatic.” Sabrina Bellaouel
