Sofiane Saidi & Mazalda Live at Jazz à Vienne Séquence Archives 2018


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.
