It has been nicknamed the Rolling Stones of North Africa in a French documentary Producers by Michel Chanderli and Souheil BenBarka. Some of their songs were featured in the film The Last Temptation of Christ and on the associated album Passion. The late Larbi Batma is considered one of the pillars of the band. Their songs addressed many topics most notably political and social injustices in a time when that was a risky undertakings. Hamid Batma, Larbiís brother, is known to have been very involved in the song making process. He himself formed his own band called Masnawa and is now a member of Nass ElGhiwane.
