Discrimination of Amazigh Music in Studio 2M

2M, a Moroccan channel, remains a racist channel. Even if the decision makers always say that Tamazight will have its full rights in the media, the facts are proving the opposite.
Abdellah BOUZANDAG, the singer of Tafsut Band was recently a victim of this discrimination by 2M channel. In a competition program called Studio 2M, the participation of Bouzandag was not accepted in the 3 stage of the competition in Agadir (South of Morocco) just because he sings in his mother tongue Tamazight. Moreover, the application form to be filled by participants indicates that the candidate has just two choices not more: Arab Songs and Occidental songs, they excluded Amazigh music even if more than the half of the population speak Tamazight.
Tafsut is a band created in 2004 by some Amazigh activists in Agadir (Morocco) since then TAFSUT participated in many festivals and concerts transmitting its noble messages of peace freedom, justice, human rights.
Here is a live short clip from a live concert of Tafsut band playing the song
