In 1986 the Dissidenten moved to Spain, producing Life At The Pyramids and began to receive recognition in the US and UK. In 1989 they moved back to Morocco, recording Out Of This World with the Royal National Orchestra of Morocco, and other leading North African musicians including Cherif Lamrani and other members of Lem Chaheb. The album was released world wide and the band toured around the globe to promote it. In 1991, the album Live In New York was released, and the following year The Jungle Book was recorded, weaving recordings of Indian life into dance tracks. Sahara Elektrik (1985). Life At The Pyramids (1986) - Two versions of this album exist, The track "Telephone Arab" is completely redone. Out Of This World (1988). Live In New York (1991).

Sahara Elektrik feels to me like an exploration of an imagined North Africa, one where implausible excitement and unspoiled beauty exist side by side. If I were to make a comparison, it would not be to another record, but to the Indiana Jones films – it's not real, it's a good job it's not real, but imagine if the world really were like this! Visit Dissidenten's world: it's addictive. Dissi's "Telephone arab", one of my all time favourite song and video, might be on youtube. I actually relistened to their album "Life at the Pyramids" in the wake of the "Arab spring" after yonkers and truely enjoyed it. Aaah, the 80's, Raj (levanthian pop music) was huge then and so was Ms. Ofrah Haza. com/watch?v 7Hh047H vHc. It's of course a coincidence but the silhouette of the praying Arab in front of what looks like the Twin Towers is spooky.

Dissidenten's first release of the '90s, 1990's Out of This World, was also their first album to be featured on a major . The album featured several guest North African musicians, including the string section of the Royal National Orchestra of Morocco, plus Cherif Lamrani and Mahmoud Saadi (both members of such renowned outfits as Lemchaheb, Jiljilala, and Nass El Ghiwane). Since beginning the group nearly ten years earlier, the trio decided to move their operations back to their homeland of Berlin. Dissidenten & Jil Jilala - Gun Factory. dissidenten - sahara electric.

The third album from the German worldbeat trio Dissidenten, Life at the Pyramids stems from a period of time spent in North Africa (but was recorded largely across the Straits of Gibraltar in Spain). The lyrics are performed largely in Arabic, though, as usual, there are variations. Despite the obvious emphasis on Middle Eastern and North African formats, there are strong ties to much of the Sub Saharan African styles, especially soukous (which lends itself well to basic worldbeat equations quite often)
