Dahka band’s music can be described as world music sound with a modern approach to it. We infuse our original cultural sound from Algeria, Nigeria, and Turkey and made it into something appealing to all by merging sounds from all around the world. The resulting music with lyrics in Arabic, Berber, west African Yoruba, and English, as sung through rock instrumentation like electric and bass guitars, tenor saxophone, drums, African and Latin percussion, 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. The brainchild behind Dahka Band include Eli Fola III and Fathi Tabouche.
