Soolking added: “I was born in a modest family, my father was member in a musical band. I made a very particular path with music with some little jobs. This part of my life allowed me to build my self and I think that I am very lucky to reach what I am enjoying now.”
Dancer, drummer then singer, Soolking is one of the rare artists that knew how to stay faithful to his unique style while answering what his fans called for with great sincerity and love.
“Music should be made with love and sincerity, there is no magic way to succeed in making a good song, you just need to be sincere. “Said the young singer while taking his song “La Liberté” as an example which became one of the symbols of freedom and rebellion in Algeria and in many countries. “Any artist in this world should be very close to his fans and should be very attentive to what they feel and what they demand, which was the case with “La Liberté” I wrote for Algeria which I really miss.”
When talking about his style of music, Soolking said that the various styles of music he listened to since he was a child had a very great impact on his musical orientation. “I am a great fan for Khaled, Mami and many other Algerian and foreign artists.” He said while recalling that his songs are a misture of the various musical styles and that’s the secret of his success.
