North African Celebration 

Our writers tell you what's hot this week.

Although North Africa was their homeland for thousands of years before Muslim and European conquest, the Amazigh (Berber) people continue to struggle for rights and justice, expressed in their music. Two Bay Area-based Berber bands fill Berkeley's all-ages Ashkenaz this Friday with their music: Algeria's Moh Alileche and his international octet, along with AZA, led by Moroccan natives Fattah Abbou and Mohamed Aoualou. Alileche's recent short film celebrating his people's culture, From Kabylia to California, screens before and after the music. 8:30 p.m., $15/$10. (Larry Kelp
