Ahmed Malek – Algerian Films & Television Recordings (1972​-​1979) a paraître sur le fabuleux label CARTILAGE RECORDS dirigé par DJ ARC DE TRIOMPHE

22 Mai

Following the steps of a rich algerian composer tradition, Ahmed Malek (1931-2008) borned of both arabic & berberian origin, gained a huge notoriety composing scores for some of the most emblematic movies of the post colonialism era: Omar Gatlato, Inspector Tahar’s Holiday, Mughamarat Batal… The « Algerian Maestro » as his following used to call him, remains a major personnality not only for his prominent 70’s recordings, but also for embodying a certain vision of modern Algeria. From dreamy maghrebic pop instrumental to obscure desert folk, Ahmed Malek’s works for films showcases a dive into a fascinating yet haunting music.

In 1977 the « Radiodiffusion-télévision algérienne » (RTA) offered the composer the opportunitty to compiled some of his best efforts on a scarce 2xLP record which today remains nearly impossible to trace down. We’re proud to present you some of the finest tracks from the record along with rare material from the family archives. More than any, those picturehouse recordings selected here, are borrowing of mystery, hypnotism & blend of a beautiful melancolia.


To be announced very soon
