Episode 51: The Habibi Funk stories

Could it be that the best album of the year has already been released? The people at Habibi Funk Record has dropped a brilliantly curated reissue – an exclusive guide into the music of Algerian composer Ahmed Malek, whose catalog of groovy, funky and melancholic movie scores from the 1970s, have earned him the title of Algeria’s answer to Ennio Morricone. This album not only contains remastered versions of songs from Musique Original De Films, but also previously unreleased tracks, unseen video footage, and rare photos. Stories as good as the amazing music.
