HAKIM HAMADOUCHE INVITES AHMAD COMPAORÉ (26/03/2016) 20:30
Chaabi rock and free jazz concert.
Born in Algeria, raised in Marseilles, musician and singer Hakim Hamadouche is best known for being the mandolute player of French-Algerian raï singer Rachid Taha with whom he collaborates since 1991. In 1995, he created the band ORIENTAL FUSION with Ahmad Compaoré and Edmond Hosdikian. His various collaborations - in the field of jazz, rock and world music - include Lili Boniche, Patti Smith, Bill Laswell, Les Têtes Raides or Tricky. His lute playing and raucous singing recall the beautiful melodies of Northern Africa and its oriental rhythms.
Of Egyptian and Burkinabé origins, Ahmad Compaoré confirms his singular talent alongside Fred Frith, Marc Ribot, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Barre Phillips, Camel Zekri or Egyptian choreographer Karima Mansour. With a constant craving for exploration and discovery, he shares his creativeness between music, dance, theatre and digital art. Twice recipient of the Culturesfrance "Hors Les Murs" award, he lived in India and Japan as part of residencies of creation. Free from boundaries, he equally enjoys the most extreme experiences in alternative and improvised music, jazz and fusion.
