The Legend of Zebda...

...a French group from the 90's "known for its political activism and its wide variety of musical styles." The group is truly the product of collective efforts, as it was "formed in 1985 when Magyd Cherfi, a community organizer at the time, organized a small group of his musician friends to shoot a video for a community organization for which he was working. More members joined the group later—several of the members met one another through involvement in community projects geared towards supporting arts and music involvement among Toulouse youth." Although they broke up after recording a live album in the early 2000s, "the individual members continued to be active in local politics and other activities for social advocacy." Their music is cool, but I really love their album covers.
