More Info:

Except from Rachid Taha, who allowed himself a few forays into the teeming, vibrant heaths of techno, no raï singer other than Cheb Malik has ever ventured into this terrain known for it's abundance of sound. If you know about Malik Adouane's ancestry, this is hardly surprising. Born in Librecourt, near Lens, he comes from a union between an Italo-Celtic mother who instilled Western sounds into his ears and a father, a former miner born in Biskra (north-east Algeria), a palm grove near the desert, musically renowned for it's lively diwan that could be called Saharan opera. In addition, the town is renowned for it's chakhchouka, a dish called after it's rich blend of various ingredients and spices. Just like Malik's music, as he was a fan of James Brown, Barry White, classical Arabic and raï music. He had been thinking about it from the beginning, but the dream took a long time to materialize.In January 1986, many raï idols turned up in Bobigny, France, for a historic and seminal festival.
