Born in 1993 at Alger.
CHOUF is an artist whose work falls within a contemporary poetic tradition of intimacy.

Her sung declamations, accompanied by guitarist Trustfall, form a hybrid between the spoken word and sentimental raï. Her writing subtly plays with love and despair, CHOUF writes about the living and the dead, the loneliness of being oneself, and the courage to say things.

A specialised educator since 2014 alongside her artistic practice, CHOUF initially focuses on the issue of drug addiction and parenthood as part of her research dissertation at the Institut régional du travail social. In 2020, she took up her post as a youth worker in the Goutte d'Or district, focusing her work on young people from the ZUPs. Her thoughts focus on the links between violence, delinquency (specifically in the context of brawls) and emotional and sexual precarity in neighbourhoods described as "sensitive". 

In 2022, she performs in a series of cultural institutions and artistic events, including the Théâtre de l'Usine in Geneva, the "TYPO" festival at the Ateliers Médicis, and the "Hors pistes" festival at the Centre Pompidou. She is currently working on several projects in collaboration with the Dynamo de Banlieues Bleues.
