Born in the Libyan city of Benghazi, Ahmed Fakroun looked set to make his mark in world music circles in the mid-1980s when his album Mots D'Amour, combining traditional Arab melodies with electronic music, was released on the Celluloid label in France.
But after US aerial bombing of Libya in 1986, years of international sanctions impeded its citizens' freedom of movement, and he consequently spent long periods abroad in the 1970s and 1980s.
However, in the last ten years he has come to prominence on the club scene when some of his early songs were rediscovered, re-edited and reissued anonymously by DJs and label owners. Now enjoying long overdue success for his work, we are proud to present Ahmed at the Jazz Cafe for his debut UK show, together with specialist Arabic reissue label Habibi Funk.
