Striking a Diplomatic Note 17

DAI in corporation with the Embassy of Algeria invites you to a special Music Night performed by Abdelkader Chaou.
Abdelkader Chaou (born November 10, 1941, in the Casbah of Algiers) is an Algerian musician who is well known in Algeria for his own style of chaâbi music, both as a singer and a mondol vituoso. He is considered important enough as a musician that he was recognized nationally at a tribute concert in 2013, an event that was a “tribute from his peers for a rich career.”
His musical repertoire contains both “light” cheerful songs as well as sad, borrowed from the Iberian or Andalusian music tradition. Abdelkader Chaou lives in Algeria where he continues to perform.
