This spirited documentary is a celebration of the power of chaabi music—the heart and soul of cosmopolitan Algiers in the 1940s—to transcend national, social, and religious boundaries. Filmmaker Safinez Bousbia serendipitously discovered some old photographs of a music class from the '40s in an antique shop in Algiers, then spent seven years tracking down the music's greatest practitioners.
