About the show

Playing tracks by

UK] Muslim Gauze, Algeria] Cheikha Rimitti, Morocco] Nour Eddine, Thurkia/Morocco] Harem+Band Apach, Algeria] Warda Djaou and more.

On the other side of the sahara, African rhythms become more angular, colder; and the tones deeper, ominously darker. Some of the killer classics have been re-fixed and mashed up: Egyptian darbuka meets Kraftwerk, Palestinian oud-electro spiced with Afro drums, Israeli folk with the moonbah treatment.

Algerian and Moroccan Rai is central to this mix, including Cheikha Rimitti's huge hit Ana Ou Ghzali, 2 awe inspiring pieces by Cheba Fadela which were re-issued by Factory Records; and older, more energetic Rai make up the ecstatic frenzied peak. Rai is immersive: a force which keeps spiraling, like the dervishes, for ever -- music non stop.

The Arabic title means "Eternity", and it describes both the timeless quality of these grooves, as well as the mystical feeling they convey: transcending the here and now, and touching, if for but a few fleeting moments, something outside our human limitations, constant and without end.
