A Taste of India, the Middle East, and Beyond

I'm pretty sure no one here has heard of DJ Cheb I Sabbah. He's a composer and performer who was born in Algeria but has lived in San Francisco since the mid-1980s. Since 1988, Sabbah has presented a series, Africa/India/Arabia, weekly at Nickie's, a popular San Francisco nightclub. His music is an interesting blend of cross-cultural music that is a great introduction to world music for the novice. I've known about DJ Cheb for quite a while and really enjoy this kind of music. I hope you do too. I love fusiony type of music. Especially Indian-jazz blends like Shakti. Enjoy. Once again--feel free to leave comments.
