Program notes

Sofiane Saidi is the last proponent of Raï, traditional Algerian folk music that originated among the poor population of the city of Oran in the 1920s. It is a sound that carries messages of anti-corruption, social upheaval, disease and colonial oppression. Known as the Prince of Raï 2.0, Saidi's lilting, raspy tones transport the essence of this music into a globalized Twenty-Fiirst Century, merging it with urban rhythms, 80s rock, Senegalese Mbalax, Gnawa trance and more. It marks a new vision of North African music, which Saidi has spread throughout the world in collaboration with French groups like Acid Arab, on the critically acclaimed 2016 album, Music of France.
