Review of 'Tékitoi?' by Rachid Taha
One of the most exhilarating things about the global justice movement is the opening up of different worlds and stepping into them through music.
Taha's world is very different to ours and on first listening to his music we had to sit down and rest! The fusion of rai (north African/French modal music), Middle Eastern music, rock, punk, hip-hop and American funk and soul combined a mixture of familiar and unfamiliar sounds. Rachid's friend in the accompanying DVD describes how because his music comes from elsewhere it disrupts the system.
