riginally formed by DJs Guido Minisky and Hervé Carvalho, Acid Arab became a fully-fledged musical entity by teaming up with Pierrot Casanova, Nicolas Borne, and with sensational Algerian keyboard player Kenzi Bourras. Since the release of their debut album Musique de France in 2016, the band have been setting fire to clubs and festivals worldwide, performing over 260 shows in close to 50 countries on four continents.

The new album is entitled Jdid
 (meaning new in Arabic), and is set for release in October 2019.
