Mehdi Laifaoui is an Algerian artist, singer-songwriter and performer. His music mixes Bedouin and trab modes, a pentatonic music that gives Algerian rai music its uniquely African flavour. The majority of his repertoire are original compositions, with occasional revisited interpretations of rai standards from the 70s and 80s.
Mehdi Laifaoui is author of the Opus & Trab Project, a project rooted in the poetry and music of western Algeria from the 1930s. His repertoire is eclectic and electric: a compelling journey through Algeria’s music history that speaks to the world in the here and now.
