Early years

At the age of fourteen Khaled formed his first band, "Les Cinq Etoiles" (French for "The Five Stars"), and began playing at wedding parties and local cabarets. He recorded his first solo single, "Trigue Lycée" ("Road to High School"), at age fourteen and soon became involved with the early-1980s changes in the Raï sound, incorporating western instruments and studio techniques. The 1980s refers to the years from 1980 to 1989. ...


Islamic fundamentalists' threats

Algerian Islamic fundamentalists were violently opposed to raï because of its sometimes irreverent tone and the fact that raï singers freely addressed taboo issues like romantic love, drugs, and alcohol. Fundamentalists were infuriated when the Algerian government, in the wake of a hugely popular 1985 raï festival in Oran, officially declared it to be one of the country's native music styles. In response, fundamentalists sent death threats to some raï artists. The danger forced Khaled to move to Paris in 1986 (see 1986 in music). In 1994 these threats materialized when another Raï artist, Cheb Hasni, was murdered. The phrase Islamic fundamentalism is primarily used in the West to describe Islamist groups. ...

International audience

In 1992 (see 1992 in music), after dropping "Cheb" from his name, he released his self titled album Khaled, which established his reputation as a superstar in France and among maghrebian emigrants around the world. His audience has continued to expand throughout the 1990s, and he has collaborated with hip hop artists. In spite of his superstar status in France, his homeland Algeria and the Arab world, his popularity in the US, the UK and other countries has been limited to a small but devoted cult following.

Political Lyrics

Khaled's songs feature political lyrics in favour of emancipation of women and more democracy. The lyrics to Aicha, written by the singer songwriter Jean-Jacques Goldman, which was in the charts in many countries of Western Europe, are about a man's lament that his love Aïcha does not notice him, even though he offers her everything, even his life. In the end, Aïcha answers he should keep his treasure, that she's worth more and does not want to live in a cage, even a solid gold one, but equal rights and respect which form true love: For other uses, see Emancipation (disambiguation). ... ...

Et du respect pour chaque jour  :And respect for each day
Moi je ne veux que de l'amour  :I don't want anything but love
