Mr. Claude Challe was my reference and my inspiration for what concerns
the approach to World Music fifteen years ago just returned from Eastern countries
Challe (born Claude Chalom in 1945 in Tunisia) is a French DJ and club owner, the creator of the Buddha Bar restaurant/clubs and music compilations.
Challe moved to France at age three. He attended Rabbinical school as a young man. At the age of 19, he opened a hair salon in Paris, and became known as "the man with the golden scissors"
From the sixties to this day Claude Challe has been the master of ceremonies of the most mythic
spots in Paris – from the Privé to les Bains, the Centre-Ville and the Buddha Bar. His music compilations – gold records several times over – have brought him world-wide reknown.
He created and mixed double albums comprised of a chill out CD and a party CD – an eclectic blend of ambient, new age trip hop world, and house which became know as “lounge” and created a new genre world-wide.
He was one of the first star DJs at the end of the 90’s and continues to do DJ sets on the international circuit. His faith in Music and the power of Love and Peace are for him a daily source of energy and inspiration.

My passion for Soulful
When many years ago I met for the first time the Master I was struck immediately by her mixing technique in which he played a genre then still unknown. I was attracted to this harmony of mixing the sounds with great dexterity in his unique style ... especially the mix of mix of sounds That explores the wide range, eclectic, and ever changing world of Deep House music. The show presents to the listener a weekly collection of classic, rare, and new music That range from deep and soulful house, African, techno, experimental, and hard, with a blackberries atmospheric and moody quality. Now six years and running, it is the show's primary objective to evolve with the fast changing world of music and technology and bring to the masses the wide spectrum of sound That deep house has to offer as well as feature underground, up and coming artists Whose music parallels. This for me was an indescribable experience ..... it was my Grandmaster. I think I was among the first in our country to play Soulful. Thanks Omar.....
