Bechtoula : Reliving the Golden Days of Shawi Rock

Metta hallem/t,
I have a treat for you. A beautiful surprise! This clip takes us back to the golden days of shawi music. Music that lifts the spirit and feeds the soul. Rock with Sabri and les Berberes and relive the golden days of our music. Enjoy!

Please join me in thanking massisam for bringing these precious Algerian gems back to life! Thanks a massisam, seg ul!

Hello Shawi,
Thanks for always finding good shawi stuff on the internet and sharing it with us. A bravo also to massiram for these memorable videos of our Djodjo.
Isn't Bechtula an old female shawi name? Some people took the habit to explain everything with derja. Djo is singing about a lady and not a gun.

Hi, amk hallid' a chek,
A funny thing happened yesterday. I was watching djo's videos with a friend of mine. His first reaction was,"is this your Algerian Mick Jagger"? :) And you know what, my friend is not far from the truth. Djo is a whole package: rhythms, lyrics, personality and showmanship.

As for your question, Djo's lyrics are deep. One has to consider the cultural context, the metaphor...etc. Having said that, he seems to be singing about a lady.

BTW, I can not figure out the beginning and the second part of the song, so please see you/others if you can figure out the rest of the lyrics.

As always, it is nice to hear from you.

Take care, bro!
