Wooden Nickel

Born in Oran, Albert Rouimi, known as Blond-Blond because he is albino, was fascinated by music from an early age. His encounter with Lili Labassi, a benchmark of Judeo chaâbi music (a genre born in the Kasbah of Algiers in the 1920s, sung in dialect and characterized by freedom of tone and improvisation), fascinated him and shaped his repertoire, which moved towards a mix of classical and fantasy registers. Blond-Blond, who died in 1999, embodied joie de vivre, as in his traditional or "Club Med" songs (vocalized in French-Arabic).
