Algerian singer Rachid Taha grew up in France, where the intermingling of cultures inspired him to combine traditional Arabic music with rock and Algerian rai. The danceable pop rai sound that became popular in the '80s is in full effect on Live. Taha's charisma and frenetic energy are showcased throughout the 11-track CD, as is his penchant for rock star posturing … la Bono. But the jangling Arabic rhythms, explosive guitar solos, and emotional vocals make the album well worth a listen. ~ Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
