Just wondering if anyone out there is familiar with Rai music. Rai is to Algeria as Reggae is to Jamaica. It's the rebel pop music of the country.
A few months ago I bought a CD by an Italian singer named Zucherro. On it he collaborates with many and varied artists. One such artist is Cheb Mami, a famous Rai singer. When I first heard his voice, I experienced a spine tingling and preverbial WOW. This man's voice is sweet (not Sacchrine) complex and involving. Never mind that I didn't understand a word. The language is sensual. BTW the CD is quite good.
After hearing this one song, I did a little research and bought 3 Rai CD's.
