Biografia

Rachid Taha (Arabic: رشيد طه) (born 1958 in Oran, Algeria) is an Algerian-French musician. His music is influenced by many different styles such as raï, techno, rock and punk. Based in Paris, France where he began his solo career after his beginnings as the leader of the French rock band “Carte de Séjour”, he usually sings in Arabic. Taha moved from Algeria to Alsace and then Vosges, France, where his father had already emigrated, in 1970. In 1981, while living in Lyon, France, Taha met Mohammed and Moktar Amini. The three of them, Rachid, Djamel Dif and Eric Vaquer would later form the band Carte de séjour (“residence permit”) and record their first maxi single Carte de Séjour in 1983. Their first LP Rhoromanie, came out in 1984. Their second and last LP entitled Deux et Demi was released in 1986 and included their famous and ironic cover of Douce France, originally sung by Charles Trenet. The band dissolved in 1989.

Politically-engaged, he has always stood up to defend democracy, tolerance and altruism against racism, fundamentalism and discrimination. His breakthrough album as a solo artist was Diwan, featuring remakes of songs for the Maghrebi and Arab traditions. His album Tékitoi, produced by Steve Hillage and released in 2004, also brought him great acclaim and recognition from other rock musicians. In 2005 he performed with Robert Plant, Patti Smith and Brian Eno.

He covered The Clash song Rock the Casbah (in Arabic, as “Rock el Casbah”), which appeared in the 2007 film about Clash frontman Joe Strummer, The Future Is Unwritten.

    All and all... I think Rachid Taha is bringing a really suitable music at its own to all the people around... You can hear in his music many, many, many influences from the arabic world... but at the same time you can hear a pure rock partitions... It's obvious that he's creating a really richful music, full of the arabic music motives, but combined with a lot of other styles, where the rock isn't forgotten, too... Btw, I have to say that I found Rachid Taha thanks to the Black Hawk Down OST (from Hans Zimmer, but with the combination of the Rachid Taha's songs). I remember like it was today..... That really "brutal" song called Barra Barra........ "Brutal" in a way how it is "infecting" your life with a music which is a little bit out of everything for the most of the western-like ppl..... Absolutely brilliant combinaton of a world and rock music. Every time i play and listen to that song I'm totally devoured with all the parts of it. A REAL MASTERPIECE SONG!!! Barrrrrrrra, barrrra!!!

    Tekitoi album- the definite soundtrack to the Arab Spring I highly recommend Safi on the album - let me translate the lyrics: The oppression is great. The government has gagged the people. Our culture is a one party state. No Law. No respect. BUT MY HEART IS PURE!!!!!!
