Boomkat Product Review:
*The first-ever compilation outside Algeria to focus on its pop, folk and rock scene of the 1970s. Heavy and psychedelic rock, dark and moody folk-pop and stoic cinematic tracks compiled by Hicham Chadly for Sublime Frequencies* Sublime Frequencies present a selection of classic tracks from Algeria's popular music history. Compiled by Hicham Chadly, the CD includes extensive liner-notes by Omar Zelig, Algeria's most legendary radio DJ. From the heavier rock and psychedelic sounds of Rachid & Fethi, Les Djinns and Les Abranis, to the haunting folk music of Kri Kri and Djamel Allem and the film soundtrack moods of Ahmed Malek, 1970s Algerian Folk & Pop documents a key period in the modern musical renaissance of a nation in transition. Most of these tracks are from 45 rpm singles, the key format during the early 1970s before the cassette took over as the medium of choice. Western musical influences can be heard throughout this extremely diverse record, yet there is an undeniable Algerian sense of sadness contained here within a more tolerant space in time between two of the country's most significant historical periods; National Independence from France and the darker times of a brutal civil war yet to come."
