Originally released in 1988. Hypnotic rhythms, impassioned voices, and forbidden sentiments: these are the potent ingredients that make rai so alluring to so many people and so alarming to others. Rai Rebels is the Earthworks compilation that first exposed this music to the world beyond Algeria and started the young Cheb Khaled and Chaba Zahouania on their way to international stardom. "A killer compilation," Musician magazine declared, "the best possible entrée to this outlaw genre. Baby, this is rock 'n' roll." Includes tracks by Chaba Fadela, Cheb Sahraoui, Cheb Hamid, Chaba Zahouania, Cheb Khaled, and Houari Benchenet.
