‘oud player, Anouar Brahem.
I only have one album: “Le pas du chat noir”, but I like it very much. If I wasn’t broke, I would buy all his albums!
I used to hear it at Fassih’s place, very often: every time, I would say: “Wow! this is great! What is it?”
Always it was the same. I never remembered: he would laugh…
A very beautiful blend of Arabic and Jazz music, with a sublime ‘French café’ flavour (coloured in particular by some very charming and unusual accordion playing): very peaceful and spiritual. There are several available to buy (or listen to a sample) on iTunes.
