Ethan Rosenblum MUET200-0112 Boden Sandstrom Elizabeth Goldman November 9 , 2009 Unit III, Section B : Pop-Raï and Globalization Reading: Al-Taee “Running with Rebels” Focus Questions: 1. How have the musical and social elements of Raï changed from its origins in the 1900s to its emergence on the World Beat scene in the 1980s? In the early 1900’s, rai was sung and performed by men respected for their strong moral and social stature in the city of Oran. Then in the 1980’s new-Rai emerged when oppressed and marginalized women adopted the genre to use it as a vehicle to express political, social, and sexual freedoms. In the most recent development Rai artists base their lyrics and singing style on the traditional genre. They have strong political reactions and borrow Western instruments and rhythms. 2. What were the social and political concerns of Raï mentioned by Al-Taee and how did they affect the globalization of the genre? Rai artists came to be associated with rebellion and a brand of marginality.
