This is definitely a must-listen!! "Abdel Kader" (Arabic: عبد القادر‎) is an Algerian traditional song made famous by the Algerian raï artist Khaled. It is featured on his 1993 studio album N'ssi N'ssi. After his 1993 original album version, Khaled released a solo live version of "Abdel Kader" in his live album Hafla in 1998. The song gained further popularity after the live performance at Palais omnisports de Paris-Bercy by Khaled, Rachid Taha and Faudel. The joint trio live version was included on the 1998 live album 1,2,3 Soleils. I love the opening rhythm--it transports me to the Middle East and really speaks to my roots and the type of music I grew up listening to!
I agree with Peter! This was such a lovely performance, thank you for sharing @cityofkyle! Love the rhythm at the beginning, it's almost reminiscent of Irish river dance!
Kyle I LOVED this performance! What an incredible crowd. I love the passion that hey have for their music--wish we had more of that in the States
