For his 2005 release, "La Kahena", Algerian born Cheb i Sabbah returned to his North African roots. Collaborating with a wide variety of North African female singers, Sabbah created contemporary folklore, rich with the authenticity of trance ceremonies filtered through the magic of his trademark production skills. La Kahena garnered both critical acclaimed worldwide. Now, the morphing and mixing continues as Sabbah has personally selected a team of eleven remixers to further evolve and transform the music on La Kahena. The result is La Ghriba: La Kahena Remixed, a landmark in today's electronica movement. Temple of Sound, Bill Laswell and newcomers like Fnaire, Bassnectar, The Chakadoons, Yossi Fine and others contribute to these remixes. From the energy of Bhangra, to Moroccan street rap, to trance, to dub, these new collaborations cover the many facets of the outernational dance-floor.

"What's apparent (and understandable) throughout is the emphasis on rhythm, natural in something based around North Africa."
