Dahka band’s music can be described as world music sound with a modern approach. We infuse traditional music from Algeria, Nigeria, and Turkey and make it into something new by mixing rock, funk, etc.
Our lyrics are in Arabic, Berber, West African Yoruba, and English. We sing to rock instrumentation, like electric and bass guitars, tenor saxophone, drums, African and Latin percussion. The result is truly unique and borderless.
Coming together in New York City, our music is in essence “melting pot” music, where you bring what you are and make something special and newly American. Dahka Band’s founding members include Eli Fola and Fathi Tabouche.
