This fifth single in Bongo Joe's 45s series focuses on the legendary Algerian kabyle rock band Abranis, founded in 1967. The band pioneered the fusion of chaabi (traditional) music with '60s-'70s western rock, proudly singing in their own berber kabyle language while wearing hippy rockers outfits. Their shows were often cancelled by governors and the band once was arrested by the police, generating riots. The band kept on playing and recording until mid '90s. This 7" presents two major tracks from the band. Side A features 'Chenar Le Blues', released in 1977, a big hit on Algerian national radio. The band's response to The Doors. The B side, 'Avehri', released in 1983 shows the band's obsession to merge different music
styles with the North African traditional airs.
