King Abid

Rhythms of interbreeding, both of cultures and languages, Heythem Tlili’s reggae-dancehall (alias King Abid) is well anchored in our century where physical and artistic borders become one.

From his Tunisian origin, his passion for Jamaica and love for his adopted homeland Quebec, ‘The King Slave’ presents us with an authentic electro beat encouraging us to get together in festive movement.

Besides his Tunisian words and sounds, beyond his Jamaican rhythm, which makes his music so unique, The King brings together an impressive range of artists, each collaborating in their own way, creating a world of sounds never heard before. It includes; Karim Ouellet, Claude Begin, Poirier, Booget, Eman and Bob Bouchard. all of these great artists come together, leaving their own trademarks to create unique sounds. It’s an uncommon blend of African and American traditions with a flavourful and modern touch that King Abid offers on his trendsetter album. King Abid’s musical singularity has earned him the title of Radio-Canada’s musical revelation in their world music category for 2017-2018.

The multidisciplinary artist King Abid, co-founded Movèzerbe, a French band with several other artists collaborating with singer Marieme. He now supports Karim Ouellet on stage as emcee and as percussionist. The forever Dj, makes people dance through the night. King Abid, AKA AbidboX has also hosted for 8 years the radio program 100 % reggae Dancehall ”Prise d’assaut Station Radio” broadcasted on CHYZ 94.3 in Québec.
