AboutChaabi music is a beautiful rhythmic cocktail of Arabic and European styles uniting Muslim and Jewish communities, and was the heart and soul of cosmopolitan Algiers until the war of independence tore them apart. 50 years later, director Safinez Bousbia tracked down a group of friends for an extraordinary reunion concert. With huge heart and a sensational soundtrack, El Gusto is a celebration of music's power to transcend national, social and religious boundaries.
Dubbed the Algerian âBuena Vista Social Club,' this is a joyful and celebratory new music documentary.
Algeria/UAE/Ireland, 2011, 88 min.
Co-presented by Birds Eye View, celebrating women filmmakers.
