Cheb Khaled - Khaled + The Rough Guide To Rai

Rai (or, rather, raï) is North African ethno-pop, sung in Algerian arabic. Exotic middle-eastern melodies over the disco, flamenco, reggae rhythms. Cool stuff.
Cheb Khaled is rai's biggest star and very popular in France (or so they say). Here's a great article about him.

  2. Yeah, I like him a lot. Maybe I'll put up more of his stuff sometime.
    I burned out somewhat. It's hard maintaining a-post-a-weekday schedule that I was trying to keep. I'll probably keep a low profile in the future. Thanks for your words, though :)

    And please, please do listen to the last one I posted, Orera!
