Djazia SATOUR (and ARASH SARKECHIK)
Protected content
Protected content

In her new album, scheduled for early Protected content , Djazia intends to explore freely a more assertive personal creative vein. She conducts an in-depth research on sonorities, animated by maturity and the need to listen to the heritage of lost ancestors: the oriental miner marries to the blues, a three-beat waltz invites itself to chaâbi rhythms by combining with oud samples, and the ben- dirs of imaginary tribes syncopate with the most unbridled banjo riffs... Entirely sung in Arabic and built around original compositions, this album tells the story of exile, the power of love, the magic of singing...

It is in Algiers in the 80s, where she grew up, that Djazia Satour exercised her ear to the arias of opera, pop music of the 60s and chaâbi. She sings her first notes under these mixed influences. Arrived in Grenoble in Protected content , she soon got to know her first musical experiences, on stage and in studio, notably as a chorister of the group Gnawa diffusion ( Protected content ). His voice, which transcends the registers, is the matrix of this unique fusion, never denied since the first exploration of the years Mig, the electro trip-hop band that made him known (in six years of existence, between Protected content 2006, MiG released an EP and two albums).
At the age of 30, in Protected content , she offered herself an acoustic interlude. Deploying a prodigious energy, she self-produces "Klami", a 6 tracks made of arrangements entirely dedicated to the stage.

Arash Sarkechik
Multi instrumentalist and singer, trained in classical and jazz music, Arash Sarkechik is a musician of the twenty-first century. Supported by the producer and oudist, Smadj, he delivers a first album of luminous, personal and moving songs.
It is a faithful reflection of Arash's thousand musical journeys, but does not fall into the collection of trophies nor the enumeration of knowledge. With a discreet touch, the Orient and the blues talk lovingly and open up unexplored paths.
