Editorial Reviews

Following up on the excellent Made in Medina, Algerian-born singer Rachid Taha returns with the equally impressive Tekitoi, his fifth album. Taha has long mixed North African rai and chaabi with alternative rock, electronic sounds (Brian Eno co-writes one song), techno rhythms and a smattering of other styles. But instead of turning these diverse sounds into a cacophonic bowl of mush, Taha and longtime collaborator Steve Hillage balance muscular rhythms, a panoramic feeling of space, and Taha's own rock star leanings--never has this fusion been better illustrated than here on "Safi (Pure)." Taha also shows a wicked sense of humor with his ironic and somewhat tongue-in-cheek version of the Clash's "Rock The Casbah," taking some of the funk out while adding strings (by Egyptian Strings Ensemble) that push up the kitsch value. This album and its maker's many fans prove that not everyone of Middle Eastern origin is a conservative or a fundamentalist. For Taha, though, it's simply another boundary breaking effort. –-Tad Hendrickson

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, if not THE best album of 2004 December 21, 2004
By JoJo
Format:Audio CD
Rachid is a master...this album is fantastic from start to finish. Highlights include the INCREDIBLY funky "Lli fat mat!" and "Nah'seb" as well as the title track and, of course, "Rock el Casbah." Two cool bonus tracks are included, one being "Ya Rayah" which was on his album "Diwan" and the Spanish language version of "Voila voila," which, after viewing the very cool DVD that comes with this album, you will understand its inclusion. This guy is amazing, and belongs in the same league with Bob Dylan and Caetano Veloso. He should be a statesman!! Bravo, Rachid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rachid Taha is at his best! April 11, 2005
By Sufy
Format:Audio CD
Rachid Taha is truly innovative. He may not have the same voice qualities as Khaled, the King of Rai, or Cheb Mami, the Prince of Rai. However, he compensates the listener with truly unique music that carries the signature of his wounded voice. All tracks here are great and very consistent. The music is well done. Most lyrics convey a political message and written by Rachid, and also composed by him with the production of Steve Hillage, the Prince of Arabia. Rachid's music is so unique making it impossible to classify as rai, techno, rock, pop, etc. I classify it as Rachidmania. If you get the DVD, it basically documents his 2004 tour in Mexico.

I heard Rachid Taha's version of Rock The Casbah on the radio and could not get it out of my mind. I really wanted this CD and was not at all disappointed

5.0 out of 5 stars great rhythm October 16, 2008
By Nora SP
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard his song from a movie Something New. I decided to buy the whole CD and I love it. Even my son (6 yrs) loves his songs. But my husband called one of the songs (the one from a movie) "belly dancing song". LOL My son and I always play his songs in the car. Don't know what the songs mean though. We just love the sounds.
