Album Review

It was the biggest Algerian concert ever in France, with Khaled, the King of Rai, Faudel, the music's young prince, and Rachid Taha, the French-raised Algerian roots rocker. While there are plenty of greatest hits — Faudel's groundbreaking "Tellement N'Brick" and Khaled's "N'Ssi N'Ssi," for example — this live recording is just as much about sharing the stage, combining styles and generations. And so you have all three combining forces on the classic songs "Ya Rayah" and "Comme d'Habitude," Khaled and Faudel teaming up for a version of Khaled's 1996 hit "Aicha," and so on. They all get their individual times in the spotlights, but cooperation is the key, backed by a crack band of Western and North African musicians. As a document of a landmark event, it's important. But taken on purely musical terms, it's a thrilling performance, with each of the stars right at the top of his form, and a vital disc to anyone interested in world music.

fantastic

Anything with Rachid Taha is absolutely fantastic. He is also great live. One problem: why is this categorized as "french pop"? Algeria is no longer a french colony. Also one of the artists is also egyptian, so this is more like "north african-arabic" music. The category of "French pop" is actually insulting.

Tawher’s Arabian Sonatas and Symphonies Sounds Supper Cool

I love this Album; very creative music here with unique style…. but I still love..love.. Tawher’s voice, very romantic very explosive new Arabian music from Tawher that is wonderful

Wish I had seen the concert!

This is an amazing album! Khalliouni, Menfi, Voilà Voilà, Abdel Kader, and Didi are very good. This iTunes version actually has more tracks than the CD (CD comes with a DVD though).
