[WORLDWIDE DANCE PARTY] Cheb-i-Sabbah DJs world-fusion music, often taking his cues from Middle Eastern, African and South Asian traditions. His life is even more cosmopolitan. It began in Algeria in 1947, where he was born into a Jewish-Arabic family, and continued in 1964, when he moved to Paris and started spinning soul records. After meeting world-fusion pioneer Don Cherry in New York, he relocated to San Francisco in the ’80s and began developing his unique style. The warehouse parties of the ’90s were his proving ground and, ultimately, his launchpad. The warehouses turned into nightclubs, and simple DJ sets turned into albums, including 2006’s La Kahena, which helped him get nominated for a BBC World Music award in 2006. To top it all off, Cheb-i-Sabbah has just beaten cancer with the help of a massive two-disc benefit album, including collaborators and similar artists like Transglobal Underground and Bill Laswell. He may be aging, but Cheb-i-Sabbah can still spin global grooves with the best of them.
