After a two year absence, the global beats legend returns to
Vancouver to join the city's Diwali celebrations. San Francisco based
DJ Cheb has been spinning discs longer than most of us have been
alive. He left his native Algeria in the 1960s, and has made a career
out of blending music from all over the world into kaleidoscopic,
dance-floor mixes ever since. His first three masterful albums for
Six Degrees Records, Shri Durga (1999), MahaMaya - Shri Durga ReMixed
(2000), and Krishna Lila (2002), are cult classics in which India's
time-honored traditions merge with the universe of possibilities
afforded by contemporary recording technology. This trilogy
established him as a unique artist who creates bridges between
cultures with a deeply moving sound drawn from DJ wizardry and world
music aesthetics. Collaborating with musicians such as Nusrat Fateh
Ali Khan, Zakir Hussain, and Bill Lasswell, his DJ mixes have become
a touchstone of hip spirituality in the far reaches of Europe and
Asia and have brought him cult status in the club land underground of
the U.S. Cheb's previous 3 Vancouver shows have sold out, so get your
tickets early!!!

Joining Cheb i Sabbah will be Tarun & Nils from Beats Without Borders
and special guest dancers & musicians.
