Abstract:

Born at the beginning of the twentieth century, raï has imposed itself as one of the most important forms of expression in North Africa, especially Algeria. Fashioned from a series of chaotic moments, shocks and counter-shocks, raï became, over time, the kind of popular music we now know. This essay attempts to trace back the socio-historical and cultural paths taken by this music and its artists.
