Video 7/19/2016: Democratoz

Democratoz lays down hard-grooving reggae with all the ecstasy and defiance of young North Africa. Hailing from Oran, Algeria's cultural nexus, the group digs back into the city's best-loved pop form, rai, and makes dance-floor filling-calls for social change in the bargain.

Presented in collaboration with Center Stage, a cultural diplomacy program run by the U.S. Department of State.
