Szold Music & Dance Hall 4545 North Lincoln Avenue Box Office: 773.728.6000 Old Town School of Folk Music and Kalapriya present dj Cheb i Sabbah. Born in Algeria of Berber (Amazigh) descent, Cheb i Sabbah moved to Paris as a teenager and became a DJ by chance. By the late 1980s, residing in San Francisco, he was internationally pushing boundaries on the dance floor, seeking ways to infuse Asian, Arabic, and African sounds into the mix. Then as the “world music” movement unfolded, Cheb i Sabbah took the inspired step of recording traditional and classical musicians from India, Pakistan, and Africa, effectively transforming those compositions into sonic landscapes, thus creating a new style of electronic music “composed” by a DJ.
