Rachid Taha (Arabic: رشيد طه) (born 1958 in Oran, Algeria) is an French-Algerian musician. His music is influenced by many different styles such as rock, techno and raï. Based in Paris, France where he began his solo career after his beginnings as the leader of the French rock band "Carte De Séjour", he usually sings in Arabic. In 1981, while living in Lyon, France, Taha met Mohammed and Mokhtar Amini. The three of them, Rachid, Djamel Dif and Eric Vaquer would later form the band "Carte De séjour" (Green Card) and record their first maxi Album Carte De Séjour in 1983.

Their first LP Rhoromanie, came out in 1984. Their second and last LP entitled Ramsa (Five) was released in 1986 and included their famous and ironic cover of Douce France, originally sung by Charles Trenet. The band dissolved in 1989. Better known as one of Rachid Taha’s greatest hits this track was originally written by revered Algerian singer Dahmane El Harrachi (1926-1980). The lyrics sung in an Arabic/ Algerian dialect describe how the thought of returning home is ever present in the minds of first generation immigrants.

This version matches Taha’s for it’s impassioned lament of homesickness and struggle. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
