In 2003, film director Safinez Bousbia stumbled upon the inspirational story of El Gusto, a group of Jewish and Muslim artists separated by war in Algeria more than 50 years ago, but brought together by a shared passion for Chaâbi – a musical blend of Berber, Andalusian, and Flamenco-influenced sounds meaning “of the people.” Called “The Buena Vista Social Club of Algiers,” the 20-piece El Gusto orchestra stars in Bousbia’s documentary, chronicling the transcendent power of music.
