RA?NA RAI Legacy
12:00:00 AM Saturday Nov 20, 2004



When americans and europeans talk about great music where string instruments are used they pride themselves on Jimi Hendrix and his electric guitars, Santana, Pink Floyd, U2, The Beatles and the list goes on. If you ask north africans about their giants of string instruments you'd hear names like Andaloussi Raiss and their Rbabs, Doukalli and his oud, Rwisha and his violin, Nass Lghiwane, Jil Jilala, Gnawa and their Gomris, Chaabi and its crying violins, fine Qanuns and mellow mandolins. But seldom if never you'd hear a reference to giants of guitar and bass in North African music. Those who get it right agree that it's the amazing band RAINA RAI that started it in the late 70's through mid 80's under the startling tunes of its guitarist Lotfi Attar. During the late 80's and throughout most of the 90's electric guitar in North African music faded away. When it was featured it was outsourced to european talents. Since the late 90's North Africans engaged in redefining pop music and adopted the concept of fusion. That's when guitars and basses reappeared as main instruments for modern bands like Hoba Hoba Spirit, Orchestre National de Barbes, and many others.



RAINA RAI sings about our traditions and make music that further beautify these traditions. They sing about romance, about religion and about nationalism in highly poetic words.



But let us, the fans, remember the original talented band that started it all RAINA RAI. Although they haven't released a full new album in years now, but their oldies still live and capture our imagination. I can't list all of their tunes but I picked some of the rare and interesting ones. I would love to add a couple of songs from their outstanding performances in Alger 1986 or Paris 1995 but I lost them recently (Gggrrrrr I don't want to think about it again!). Let's contemplate their tunes, and ask them to give us 1... moooore.... ALBUUUUUUM!




ZGHA?DA


MAMA


TAILA


LARGA (very cool!)


AMARNA


YAL3ALI

Check out the classic video ya zina! The first time I saw it was in emission planete rai on Algerian TV back in late eighties, top 10 rai hit video clips.. the other clip was of Caravan to Baghdad and Hakmet Laqdar by Dissidenten featuring Hamid Baroudi. But anyways, Enjoy this eighties classic, the pretty girl zina with her mesmerizing north african eyes, and the fresh streets of dzayer, sailors and harbor!

And here is a newly found video of "Lala Fatima" back when La3marna and Rainrai were a single band:

Salam,

i've just received the album CD this morning, very cool album... almost all the songs are performed very well, i discovered "Ki Rani" wich i've never heard before, nice singing in couple scheme (Djellouli & Attar)..

I'm listening to it since this morning repeating it indefinitely... there were some echo problems in lot of songs, it was not very well managed by the sound engineers...


By interpreting the voices and the band history I guess that the band formation in that concert was: Attar (guitar), Djellouli (drums), Guebbache (vocal), Dendane (saxo), Baghdad (bass), I hear another saxo, but don't know who is playing it...

Final Solo (guitar replying to saxo) of Zghayda is stunning!

Taila!! oh my God, listen to the choral at the starting of the song, a musical harmony of three voices... Also the chorals in the refrains of Khalti Fatima and Ki Rani are very very very nice, total harmony.

Ezzine elfani is amazing, cannot be compared to the one in the album "bye bye", it reminds me the one i've heard in live performance in Berkane - 2002, specially when Djellouli changes the rythm pattern at minute 2:06.

Larga is very well performed with nice choral and blues guitar riffs.

Guebbache singing Zina in her 20th birthday, exceptional, nice saxo solos...

Djellouli very funny, doing some jokes to chain between songs...

Lala Fatima, wich "nice" surprise Adnane? there is a "bad" surprise in that song!!! Djellouli's mic (normally lead singer of that song, he always sing it) became down after 2min 10 seconds of the begning of the song... and poor Attar (normally doing ONLY intro and choral) stayed alone! but he continued singing no matter, even if he never does lead vocal (a part of mayme: Raina Hak album). But Lotfi didn't give up, improvised a little bit in singing, then turned the song as an instrumental, doing a long solo full of gnawi feeling, until Djellouli came back "à la rescousse" at minute 6:20 of the song. The song is saved, he made a drum shuffle to temporize and recall the general rythm to everyone, then the song continued normally...

I wonder why Qraqeb were not very present that concert, there were lot of songs with gnawi style...

Peace

I agree with you on many levels, especially the marketting and PR part. I honestly blame artists that made it big like Cheb Khaled, Rachid Taha etc who don't give a push to old timers rainarai, recollect them in their interviews, cooperate with them in songs, be part with them in a concert.. Those guys had good backing by the big producers, why not share that spotlight with rainarai? I bet you that rainarai, like any other groups with Naffss and passion and dignity (lemchaheb, nass ghiwane, jil jilala..) refuses to ask, to madd lyaddd.

I also encourage people to buy their albums, but wich albums can they buy?
In morocco, casablanca & rabat, u can find, Hagda, with a little more luck, u can also find Raina Hak & Mama but u have to seek for it in bab marrakech, 9ri3a, darb ghallaf, bab l7ad & all other swi9ate, ... it's a QUEST not a shopping! If u go to other cities, u ask the seller about raina rai, he replies: rai? yes i have hasni, khaled, mami, then he will put a "tstifa" of their k7 and cds... If u go to oujda, maybe u can find more about amarna in k7,like "chouli" album, and raina rai last album "bye bye"...

In europe, and specially in france (internet shopping & physical one), there is no trace! Hagda, Live in Paris & Raina Hak, NO amarna albums at all!

I've searched on the net to find where i can buy the album "live au divan du monde", its source is in netherlands, try to search u'll find 3 or 4 links on all the web! finaly i bought it this morning at ebay, hope i get it soon! but i'm thinking about myself, when i was in morocco, imagine that i've heard about the album, and have no credit card to pay for it online! gona go crazy!!! it's so sad to not find raina rai albums, and that's why, personnaly i have no conscience problems when i put their music on the net. i guess it is helping them rather than destructing their business, coz when LOT of people will discover raina rai and their music, there will be LOT of demand, and then, LOT of market production, and finaly LOT of music production...

u know what is the problem of raina rai? it's the "mediatisation". nobody talk about them coz nobody knows them! but everybody knows Zina! what a paradox!!

It is exactly as you describe it and more! indeed a beautifully executed song!.. other surprises in Divan that blew my mind away were Larga, Khalti Fatima, Lalla fatima (with a nice surprise) and Kirani. This concert is really good man! Unfortunately, today I feel bad putting their songs on the site for download. I'll probably play them on a macromedia player to avoid people downloading them (well,,, except some who would know how to do it). But I truely encourage everyone to buy the album and own it.

talbat elghali ha la7nina...

aaah, j'imagine la voix de Hachemi chantant Ezzin el fani... le morceau commence par une tres belle intro facon egyptienne au synthé, puis Lotfi transforme sa guitare Les Paul au son distordu en ghayta pour un moment... Djellouli intervient avec sa voix grave ... On commence à avoir une idée sur l'air générale de la chanson ... on commence a voir les chameaux, le desert, le soleil...

Adnane, tu peux stp mettre le morceau sur le site? je viens de commander l'album aujourd'hui sur internet et je suis impatient de ré-ecouter le morceau. Je l'ai écouté la 1ere fois en assistant à leur concert à Berkane en 2002, c'etait top! Et la 2eme fois sur l'album "Bye bye" que j'ai perdu... et qui n'existe pas en CD ... (meme les k7 il faut etre chanceux pour trouver quelqun qui vend des albums autre que Hagda :s )

En fait, l'album (divan) vient de sortir avril dernier, mais il a été enregistré à paris lors de leur tournée de 2002 pour la promotion de leur dernier album sorti en 2001/2002 du nom de "Bye bye"...

Salam everybody,
Thank u adnane for citing my webspace below. I just wanted to say that Faycel Attar (Lotfi Attar's bro) isn't the one on the "Lala Fatima" video. U can see him playing guitar rythmics on Raina Rai concert in Bobigny (Zina) at the begining of the video. U can see also the other brother Mohamed Reda Attar playing Bass on the same concert.

For the song "Lala Fatima", it doesn't figure in "Mama" album. I don't know in wich album is it, coz i have only one live version of that song.

Regards

NB: Both Mohamed Reda and Faycal are dead ( allah yr7amhoum). We hope long life for the remaining brother, the guitar heroe, Lotfi Attar...

I've added a video gem of rainrai's "Lala Fatima" from the album Mama (check their song mama above). It's fantastic!.. here you can see a couple of band members who had passed away, one of the vocalists (Djellouli) and bassist Faycel (layar7amhoum). You can find more information on rainarai on myspace momentarilly. Also a fan of rainrai/lamarna put up another myspace profile where you can watch some other videos.

Salam every body,

i just discovered this forum, i wanted to tell u about a Raina Rai album i've listened to recently, in 2002 i think. It's their latest album, with the old trio:
Lofi Attar (lead guitar)
Hachemi Djellouli (drums)
Mohammed Guebbache (lead vocal in Zina)
and some teen new elements.

The album contains some songs as:
Zina (a new version wich contains some english passages)
Marsoul (new version of the old one)
Ayech hani (again new version)
Khalti Fatima
Talbat lghali
and other new songs...

Since 2002 i've lost the tape. recentely i searched on the net but i was amazed coz there is NO info about that album! neither songs to download, nor general info about that released official album!

i've assisted to a raina rai concert in morocco (berkane) last 2002 and i were very pleased to see/hear the live performance of that really great band.

by the way, i'm searching a song called : khallouni nbki 3la rayyi, recorded when it was Amarna time, where u can listen to great music, very nice ray voice with Djillali the crazy (i like the way he dances and moves on the scene) and great guitar solos by the Legendary Lotfi Attar. I hope someone have that song, contact me by mail plz...(french/english/arabic)

Salamou 3alaykom from a Rainaraiphil...

Got an email from the biggest Raina Rai fan I know of -- how modest.. he didn't want to post and show off his knowledge of the intricate details

Adnane,

Just so you know, Raina Rai Split (Raina and Amarna), Lotfi stayed with Amarna (you can hear him in the "Ana ma 3andi zher" album which has the "bassif nwalefha" song), that's why he was not on the Live in Paris album :)
Good job !

I don't remember the group very well, but I know I have heard their songs before, as a small child.

But hearing this old-school music now makes my jaw drop to the floor, knowing that this music was produced in late 70s through mid 80s. I am baffled!! my personal preference is TAILA and LARGA. Ok...just imagine watching/listening to them LIVE...Whouldn't that be ecstatic. If you are a Blues/Jazz fan, I think LARGA is the song to enjoy.

Thanks again for taking us on a quick trip to the past.

Keep it coming!!

Salut les amis,
Merci bien Monsieur Adnane , tu fais vraiment de gros efforts , merci mille fois.
de retour au sujet . Raina Rai (waman laya3rifouhoum),
originaire de Sidi Bel Abbes , Algerie , c\'est le groupe pionnier du Rai,dont il a ecrit l\'histoire depuis plus de 20 ans .
il ont une grande influence et on peux le voir dans des nouveau groupes comme L\'orchester national de Barbes ou Gnawa Diffusion ...
Nobody would say and know Raina Rai more than Cheb Khaled even people say he s the king of rai , but i heard himself on Raiuno the Italian channel saying that Raina Rai were the ones who (iktachafou)( to be more specific) , Rai music .
Adnane , merci encore , merci les amis et a bientot

Adnane ,

I have heard that live record years ago...
they were great .
It suppose not all members are algerians. at least the bassist seem to be an african..
unique style, never the less.

PS: what does Larga mean ?

Mama will remain the song of choice. It was the first in my mind to introduce a jazzy drum beat. I always wished the guitar had more layers; the first guitar segment seemed a little chopped up and the second picked up the beat a little bit.

The song starts off very cool and chilling, then heats up when the lead vocals are introduced.

Still, Raina Rai are always there when I ride the slopes in the middle of snow storms; gives me a nice groove to pace myself to.

Pray for more snow, and Jah bless

Just received the original copy of Concert Raina Rai in Paris I lost a while ago! it has a great version of Taila and YAL3ALI, will add them to above list eventually! But unfortunately... Lotfi Attar didn't make it to that concert ggrrrr, but still it has some good guitar/bass grooves -- and Antr, you'll enjoy the drummer, he had a good performance!

Hello,
Raina Rai music invaded with merit almost every household in my town during the 80's. My summer memories, as i assume for many guys of my generation, are strongly associated with much of this music. I remember as a young boy, just before the boom of the Rai Music, these songs played in weddings, beach parties, stores in the souk and every place and occasion except in Mosques and funerals!!!. They use to rock young people with AZINA DIRI LATAI, A TAIL A TAILA and ARAI YAH HAKDA HAKDA. again Adnane thank you for providing us with the rich and varied north African music.
