Zoom by Rachid Taha
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Naïve
This Algerian-French superstar's ninth album is his masterpiece. After earlier efforts marrying traditional raï strings to various strains of electronic and rock, Zoom is his most multi-faceted yet, from the twisting exotica-rockabilly of "Ana" to the country-style fiddling of "Fakir," the excellent Mick Jones cameo on "Algerian Tango," the anthemic "Jamila" and the Jeanne Added flamenco duet "Now or Never." Zoom highlights Taha's signature musical blends while stretching his sensibilities in equal measure. You can even recommend it to people who normally find non-English music a blind spot.
