Saturday Khaled Festival

Living in Paris for as long as we have and traveling extensively in the mid-east – we ended up hearing a lot of Khaled. I love the track Aisha… proving once again that the one universal truth all of humanity shares – no matter what creed, color or race – is boys chasing girls.

Khaled Hadj Ibrahim (Arabic: خالد حاج ابراهيم‎, born 29 February 1960), better known as Khaled, is a raï singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist born in Oran in the square of Eckmühl in Algeria. He began recording in his early teens under the name Cheb Khaled (Arabic for “Young Man” Khaled, as opposed to the traditionalist Sheikh elders) and has become the most internationally famous Algerian singer in the Arab world and across many continents. His popularity has earned him the unofficial title “King of Raï”.[1] His most famous songs are “Aïcha” and “C’est la vie”.

    Very pretty music. Since a lot of North Africa has French as their second language, it’s no wonder that a lot of their music is also sung in French. Have you guys ever listened to Leo Férré? L’anarchie is a very powerful song from back in my days.

  2. The Beat says:

    My bad. The song is called, Les Anarchistes.

    Very nice ……
    and regardless of mainstream media, the ones in power and 1500 years of lies, the truth is that we are a big family of believers……

    Muslims consider Christians (and Jews) to be People of the Book…
    Islam teaches that Jesus (Isa) was one of the most important prophets of God
    Muslims see Jesus as the last prophet sent to the Children of Israel and
    the Messiah (Masih) miraculously born of the Virgin Mary (Maryām),
    Al-Quran43:61[10]… Jesus will be sent again to earth at the end of time…
