Khaled: All Hail the King of Algerian Raï

August 22, 2008

Khaled is truly “the King of Algerian Raï.” But why hadn’t anyone told me about him before the other day. I feel hurt about this. All those concerts for all of these years, and now Khaled is like 50 and I haven’t met him or anything. Better now then never, I guess.

    By the way, the idea here is that Khaled’s sister is supposed to be trying to get her father to agree to let her marry a guy who her father doesn’t approve of. And Khaled is supposed to be her brother trying to mediate. But in the end, of course, we see that she sneaks off to be with her man with only her brother’s moral support.

    For more on this, see my latest book, “El Harba Wine: Khaled’s True Inside Story.”

    You know, this reminds me of a terrible conversation I once had. It ended with me being fired and my hot-tub privileges being revoked at the local community center. I was aloud to keep the jumpsuit though.
