Rirsakr Fi Simana

Algerian music a kind person sent me recently. Great Saturday morning atmosphere. Thinking of politics in North Africa this week.
FYI Baltimore: I will be DJing Awesome Tapes from Africa on Saturday, February 5 at a party with a bunch of rad artwork and other DJs and stuff, at a place called STR8 CAVIN (B302 COPYCAT). Last time I went to Baltimore was for a hardcore show in like 2003. This is going to be awesome.
PS: In what feels like a major step, I joined Facebook this week. Just noticed someone made a Facebook page for this blog.
WOW! I did not expect sounds like this when I saw the cover. Raw and powerful singing with beautiful instrumentation. Any idea if this is a traditional Algerian music?
Yep same here - cover made me think this was going to be subdued/stuffy, but the first track just made my saturday morning breakfast! Great stuff :)Post a Comment
