Accompanied by her orchestra, Beihdja Rahal pays tribute to the very refined art music of the Algerian repertoire, which is part of the very rich tradition of al-Andalus, or Muslim Spain--an undertaking made possible by her exceptional talent, her unique voice, and her perfect mastery of an ancestral art.

Though he's not too well known in the US, rai musician Khaled (pronounce the 'kh' as 'ch') is a phenomenon in the Arabic world, with a popularity that has reached almost surreal proportions. In 1992 his monster hit single 'Didi' sold over a million copies in European, Arabic and Asian countries, and made him more popular than Michael Jackson in India. This is his 1998 release featuring 14 tracks. Polygram.

Khaled ~ Kenza Since the early 1990s, rai pop star Khaled has steadily smoothed over the rough edges of the carefree North African dance-pop sound that brought him great acclaim--and criticism--in his homeland of Algeria. Since then Khaled has lived in Paris and aimed toward more Western horizons, exploring the sounds of R&B and reggae with mixed success. On Kenza, recorded mostly in Paris and London, Khaled has found just the right balance of Arabic elements and heavy Western rhythms--not to me

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

Rai in the 1980s was Algeria's punk and rap, a music of cultural revolution and youthful defiance. The many ''Chebs'' (cheb roughly means ''the young'') played a raw music, usually stripped down to voices; cheesy, cheap synthesizers; and drum machines, heavy on the bass and full of bad attitude. But Chebs grow up, make money, and become more mainstream. Cheb Mami was there at the beginning and has followed this growth pattern. Gone is the rough edge and in its place is a smooth sophistication, a

The often superficial relationship between Algeria's rai music and Jamaica's reggae is fleshed out by Khaled on Sahra, a CD named after his daughter. On 3 of the 12 tracks, he utilizes the cream of Jamaican studios and performers. The symbiosis is manifested most strongly on ''Ouelli El Darek'', which features no less than the I Threes, Mickey Chung, and Dean Fraser, among others, on a fine cross-cultural workout with Khaled at the top of his form. Elsewhere he picks out some of the best funkste

Used CD Born out of the cabarets, brothels, and bars in the seaside district of Oran in Algeria, raï is an Arabic musical reaction to rock & roll and disco. The differences are evident in the beat and lyrics, which are less polite and more sexual. While this collection culls 12 tracks from a time when the grassroots music was sold on cheap--and cheaply produced--cassettes, there are bright spots. Cheikha Remitti's more traditional sound is a welcome respite from the cheesier productions. Malik'

This compilation focuses on the music of four countries -- Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, and Morocco. The focus is mainly on contemporary popular forms, but tosses in a bit of roots here and there. Rai is featured heavily throughout the album in its various incarnations from Cheb Mami to Cheb Khaled. Nubian music is also featured in multiple incarnations, from the brassy but relatively traditional work of Ali Hassan Kuban to the newer fusion-influenced Salamat. The beats of the Arab world are thoroughl
