King Abid @ The NAC

The blend of rhythms, cultures and languages in the dance hall reggae of Heythem Tlili (aka King Abid) is perfect for the shifting physical and artistic boundaries of the 21st century. With his Tunisian background, his passion for Jamaica and his love of his adopted homeland of Quebec, the “Slave King” gives us a genuine world beat electro sound that gets us up on our feet in party mode.

In short, this ground-breaking first album is an unusual blend of American and African traditions whose meaty but heavenly sounds lie somewhere between traditional and modern. King Abid’s novel approach also earned him French-language CBC’s 2017-2018 Révélation award as the discovery of the year in the World Music category.
