bladboy10 is another young talented Algerian whipping tunes on youtube. I've been following the Algerian scene on youtube recently and I'm impressed by the ability of this country's youth to utilize every medium of freedom of expression out there. There are some quality video blogs, and altogether they like to call it dzyoutubeurs community. FOUADRAI is another wonderful musician working wonders with his keyboard and sometimes harmonica and gasba. I'll write about him in another note (I happen to have designed his name logo). But let's get back to our friend bladboy10. This particular piece is so captivating and simple it's hard for anyone not to be taken by it to a fantasy world. Think Mozart meets Algerian chaabi. This music reminds me of a great musician from Oran who was the first to arrange chaabi mixed with a strong dose of andaloussi and cuban while executed on the piano. Maurice El-Medioni used to play at neighborhood bars and small parties. Imagine a cozy place with a black shiny piano at the corner, and surrounded by music lovers who are there for the sole purpose of forgetting the pains of the day and be transported on a flying carpet to the crescent moon. Maurice used to do that. And bladboy10 gives us a composition as refreshing, intense and governing. He calls it "Alger".
