The rather magnifient El Gusto Orchestra of Algiers has come up with a live album "L'Histoire les a separés, la musique les réunit", presenting the extended lineup of 27 musicians (both Algerians and expats now residing in France).

And it sounds like fantastique news:

I haven't managed to dig up anything on the album in english yet, but surely the project will be noted sooner or later. And you may remember their 1st album recorded in Algiers with Damon Albarn and released on Honest Jons.

Ah, yes: there is also a feature film length documentary of the same name, produced and just released by Quidam Productions.
