Cheb I Sabbah

The music of the world converged through the productions and remixes of Algeria-born, San Francisco-based DJ Cheb i Sabbah. The producer/promoter of a world music series, 1002 Nights, Sabbah presented a diverse cast of musicians, ranging from Pakistani qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to London-based bhangra artist Bally Sagoo. Beginning in 1988, Sabbah presented a similar series, Africa/India/Arabia, weekly at Nickie's, a popular San Francisco nightclub.

Sabbah began his professional career in the mid-'60s, when he DJ'ed at a Parisian club where he played American soul records. In the late '60s, he became involved with an experimental performance group, the Living Theater. After moving to San Francisco in 1986, he joined a similar group, the Tribal Warning Theater, building a solid reputation for his artistically spliced soundtracks for the group's shows. Sabbah's debut album, The Majoon Traveler, released in 1994, combined cut-up remixes of pieces by Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, and Angus Maclise with the poetry of Ira Cohen. He gained fame in the 2000s thanks to a series of recordings on Six Degrees, beginning with 1999's Shri Durga. Diagnosed with stomach cancer in 2011, he fought it bravely for two years before succumbing in November of 2013. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

@reewilliams ahhhh that was a magical era at Nikkies. Cheb i Sabbah is/was will always be that transcendent a l genius. He could make you literally leave your body through joyous sound. So saddened at the world's loss of a great man, a great mystic, a great visionary and healer. You are sorely missed; the world lost a great treasure...

Please visit Cheb I Sabbah's website where you will find updates on his health condition, how you may offer your support and find information on upcoming shows. The global support offered has been amazing and influential in Cheb I Sabbah's return to spin, create and share music. ~Aum Shanti Shanti Shanti

Cheb i Sabbah was last year diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. He was advised that . . .that time were not on his side. Like many Americans, Chebiji - as he is affectionate l y known does not have health insurance. Due to his weak health condition, Chebiji found himself having to cancel live shows, meaning his income stream has come to a complete halt. You can purchase the album at his website. Pandora doesn't allow web address posting but you can find it on Google very easily.

I love how Cheb's work, like most of my favorite artists', is sensual (even erotic) and spiritual at the same time. As Spock would say, "Fascinating . "
