Global A Go-Go presents:

Rachid Taha (pictured above) passed away last week. If there’s a “most Global A Go-Go” musician of all time, it would have to be this son of Oran, Algeria who came with his parents to France at age 10.

He was a punk rocker and a dance-music DJ, he was inspired by political artists like The Clash and Linton Kwesi Johnson, and his music always spoke to the universal immigrant experience. He was even the same age as me. Losing Rachid Taha is a real kick in the stomach.

This week on Global A Go-Go, I’ll curate a set-long tribute to Rachid Taha — five crucial songs from across his career, some of my favorites and ones that highlight his significance as a cultural figure. Also this week: some deeply spiritual jazz, funk from East Africa, and Latin music al y con monte.
