Cheb Khaled concert kicks off New Year’s Eve celebrations


To end 2017 and to herald in the New Year, international superstar Cheb Khaled will kick off the celebrations at Global Village with his concert on Friday, 29th December 2017. He is the poster boy for the modern form of Algerian desert blues known as Rai. He’s been its most successful modern exponent and the first to find success on the international stage.  His first big global hit, ‘Didi,’ helped consolidate his reputation that was firmly cemented by ‘N’ssi N’ssi,’ which mixed funk, rock, and an Egyptian orchestra. He then followed through with the album ‘Sahra,’ whose first single, “Aicha,” written for his daughter, gave Khaled a French number one hit.
