Khaled Habib El-Kebich composes and performs a genre of music which is both traditional and modern. He has developed a personal musical mix in which he blends different musical styles as well as music from all over the world and creates an exciting and unique musical style which is both innovative and captivating. His music could be described as having influences of funk, jazz, reggae, blues, soul, Latin rhythms as well as folk music from various corners of the world. The same applies to the mix of instruments with everything ranging from traditional drums to electronic soundscapes.
The fact that his style has its roots in raï music mixed with a variety of different musical directions, is partly because he is originally from Algeria and partly because he has written and performed music with a number of bands of different ethnic background, such as Down By Law from Italy, New Phases from South Africa, Aquarius from France, Hada Raïna from Sweden, and others.
Khaled Habib presents his musical style with great energy and charm, especially in his live performances. He performs with a number of musicians from different ethnic backgrounds, and on occasion also with dancers.
He has also participated at major European festivals such as: Falun Folk Musik Festival, Roskilde Festival, ArtGenda Festival, Stockholm Water Festival, Re:Orient Festival , Folk o Folk Festival, Verlden i Norden Festival, 550 Fatih Istanbul Festival and many others.
