HAKIM HAMADOUCHE & ORIENTAL FUSION (12/02/2016) 20:30
Rock Chaabi & free jazz concert.
Created in 1995 by mandolute player Hakim Hamadouche, drummer Ahmad Compaoré and saxophonist Edmond Hosdikian, the trio ORIENTAL FUSION was born of the will to gather energetic and spontaneous individualities around their oriental roots: Algeria, Egypt and Armenia.
Three traditions, three exiles, three sensibilities which hold a musical dialogue led by Hakim's Arab-Andalusian singing to conceive a striking music between free jazz, punk rock and Chaabi (Algerian blues) with great detours in improvisation. The coming together of these three cultures - at the crossroads of jazz, contemporary and ethnic music - led to an eponymous album with artist featuring by Tom Cora and Barre Phillips, released in 2000 on the Transes Européennes label.
