7 thoughts on “Music from Algeria – Cheb Mami

  1. Thank you so much for posting this song, I really appreciate it! This is my favorite song of Cheb Mami. Unfortunately, the man himself is not as great as his music, to say the least. I do believe, if I am not mistaken, that Cheb Mami is still serving time in a French prison for attempting to perform a forcible abortion upon his girlfriend, whom he had previously drugged. Thankfully, he was not successful in his horrific crime; I do not know if the child is alive today or not. Sadly, he was only given a five year sentence for his crimes. But however horrible the man himself may be, I still like some of his songs, and I still think that his music is great. Just like I still like the Seinfeld show and the character of Kramer, in spite of the racist rants of the actor who played Kramer on that same show. Rai is a great genre of music, and Azwaw is one of my favorite songs in that genre!
