Program June 21, 2013

Tuesday marks the 15th anniversary of the assassination of Lounes Matoub (pictured above), whose lyrics, music and performances made him the Kabylie (Algerian Berber) Bob Dylan or, perhaps more appropriately in light of his murder, the Kabyile Victor Jara.  I'll play one of Matoub's most haunting songs alongside three other contemporary Imazighen (Berber) singers, including one who now makes his home right here in Virginia.

Also this week: Marseille looks across the Mediterranean, Brazilian Afrobeat, and Bollywood madness.

It's been said that in the Kabyle region of Algeria, "there is not a single cafe, restaurant or business that doesn't have a poster of Lounes Matoub" (Merzouk Allache, quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle, June 28 2008).  Here's another image to give you an idea of how the Kabylie view Matoub.
