Fans of global electronica will enjoy Cheb i Sabbah‘s new recording, La Ghriba: La Kahena Remixed. The Algerian electronic music wizard personally selected a team of eleven remixers to “further transform and morph the music on La Kahena.”
The remixers featured are: Temple of Sound, Bill Laswell, Fnaïre, Bassnectar, The Chakadoons and Yossi Fine. The result is a powerful collection of electronic dance
music mixed with world grooves that range from sounds of the Magreb to bhangra.
For his 2005 release, La Kahena, Algerian born i Sabbah returned to his North African roots. Collaborating with a wide variety of North African female singers, Sabbah created contemporary folklore, rich with the authenticity of trance ceremonies filtered through the magic of his trademark production skills.
La Kahena garnered both critical acclaim and worldwide and retail success reaching #6 on the Billboard World Charts and #3 on the iTunes World Chart in its first month of sales.
