Worldbeat Music

Algeria-born and San Francisco-based DJ Cheb I Sabbah’s musical reinventions have included Sufi devotionals, ragas, and even Indian film music layered into trancey warped swirls of drones fused with innovative percussion patterns. On his CD, Shri Durga, he’s taken “world” music for a spin on the club dance floor yet again, with enticing results. Hear selections from DJ Cheb I Sabbah, along with works by Sheila Chandra, Bossacucanova, and the young rappers from Bamako, Les Escrocs, on a New Sounds program of worldbeat music.
