Yes, that LEGEND above, with a smiley disposition, is none other than the KING OF RAI – KHALED.
Khaled made a guest appearance at the recent Essaouira Festival and man I missed it cause I was dj’ing ;-(
Just grabbed this track from Six Degrees who in turn grabbed it from Khaled’s label, Wrasse records.
The track is from Khaled’s latest album “Liberte” which was released earlier this year. Man I have not heard it yet but I have read some blistering reviews about it and about him being back on top form. Well reviews are always touch and go, and so until I hear it myself, I cannot confirm that.
This track is a good indication that the reviewers might just be right though and explains his presence at this year’s Essaouira Festival as it is more Moroccan sounding than it is Algerian, hence the name of the track.
