With inspiration from the beautiful ecstatic Gnawa, North African and Arabic classical music as well as the diverse sounds of London streets during his busking experience, the music wonders brilliantly through diverse sonic landscapes that range from Tinariwen to Alice Coltrane, superbly funky and beautifully melodic.

Algiers (Arabic: الجزائر‎, al-Jazā’ir; Algerian Arabic: دزاير, Berber: Dzayer / ⴷⵣⴰⵢⴻⵔ) is the capital and largest city of Algeria. According to the 1998 census, the population of the city proper was 1,519,570 and that of the urban agglomeration was 2,135,630.[1] In 2009, the population was about 3,500,000. An estimate puts the population at about 3,574,000 as of 2010.[2]

Called El-Behdja (البهجة) or alternatively Alger la Blanche (“Algiers the White”) for the glistening white of its buildings as seen rising up from the sea, Algiers is situated on the west side of a bay of the Mediterranean Sea. The modern part of the city is built on the level ground by the seashore; the old part, the ancient city of the deys, climbs the steep hill behind the modern town and is crowned by the casbah or citadel, 122 metres (400 ft) above the sea. The casbah and the two quays form a triangle.

Abedelkader Chaou live in London (Part 2)

Abdelkader Chaou, Algerian popular music performer, was born on November 10, 1941 in Bab Jdid of Al Casbah of Algiers (Algeria).

Abdelkader Chaou first performed on Radio Crochet, a radio program. He then joined Algiers Conservatory of music after which he recorded his first title ”Ya Dhou A Yani” on Radio Alger in 1966.
Two years later, Abdelkader Chaou entered TNA and has participated in a gala in Shiraz (Iran) before quitting TNA.
In 1970, Abdelkader Chaou released two song s: ”Ghazali Goudami” and ”Lilah wan cheftou koudami ” waiting for the breakthrough which will come in 1973 with ” Djah rebi ya djirani”.
Later on, Abdelkader increased his fame with ” Mazal khatmi”, ”Ya laâdra win moualik” and ”Meriem Meriem”.

Abdelkader Chaou widely contributed to modernize Algerian Chaâbi music. In so doing, he was criticized by artists like Mahboub Bati, Mahboub Stambouli to have distorted the style.
