Aller ! Le Prince de Rai !!
Paris Huang | Washington, DC United States | 02/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD present the life on and off stage of Le Prince de Rai -- The prince of Rai, Cheb Mami.

Besides some concert shots, we get to see Mami sing with his friends freely in some Arabic restaurant in Paris. And how he struggle to get the music to the public. There is a surprise in the ending scene, which Mami watching his early performance (as a kid) with one of his comrade in modern Arab music -- Natacha Atlas !!

J'aime beaucoup !!"

"Not what I thought it would be. Not traditional middle eastern Arabic. It's moroccan which is predominantly french/arabic. If you're looking for ARABIC music, this isnt it."
A Must Have!!!!!!!

"For the Cheb Mami & Rai Lovers out there, this is a very well done documentary with excellent live video clips and nice cameos from Khaled, Zahouania, Natasha Atlas, and others. Thoroughly enjoyed it."
