He grew up listening to the voice and Lebanese compositions of his father . After training with Abd Al Rahman El Bacha, he went on to the Boulogne Conservatoire, where he gradually gave form to his singular approach to piano and percussions, alongside fellow students Rami Khalifé of course (his brother, piano), but also Aymeric Westrich (drums, synths) and Alexander Angelov (bass, backing vocals), who all took part in the elaboration of his first album in 2010 titled  " Oil Slick ".

During his musical career worked with conductors Lorin Maazel, James Gaffigan as well as with the Orchestre national de France and the Ensemble intercontemporain. He has collaborated on many projects that fuse jazz, world music, electronic and hip-hop with artists as diverse as Bojan Z, Carl Craig, Francesco Tristano, Murcof or Kery James.

He’s composed soundtracks for various films such as Layla Fourie, directed by Pia Marais and praised in 2013 Berlinale as well as Fièvres by Hicham Ayouch praised in 2015 Fespaco.

Artistically, he is linked to the French electronic music label InFiné with which he created, besides the aforementioned " Oil Slick ", the albums " Who's Gonna Get The Ball From Behind The Wall Of The Garden Today ? " in the 2013 and " Ya balad " in the 2015, a projection of Bachar’s childhood memories and the paths of exile, mainly sung in Arabic as an open letter to Lebanon, his native country.

Abd el Rahman el Khatib عبد الرحمن الخطيب / Abdo - Salma سالمة

Abd el Rahman el Khatib (1922-2013) was an Egyptian musician, vocalist and Oud player. He moved temporarily to Sweden to study, but will remain permanently in the Scandinavian region by taking the music teaching career. The first opportunity to make known his art will be given by the Swedish record label "Frikyrkliga Studieförbundet" which will publish in 1966 a 7 "credited to his name entitled" Det Som Later Musik ". The album, recorded with the help of two Swedish musicians (Björn Lindh on flute and Bengt-Olov Palmqvist on percussion), has 5 tracks belonging to the Arab musical tradition performed canonically, without major innovations.

The meeting, in the early '70s, with Swedish prog-rock group Solar Plexus will enable Abd el Rahman el Khatib, who has since taken the art name of Abdo , the realization of a very special album. Titled "Salma", published in its first edition in 1073 by the label Odeon under license EMI , the album consists of five long tracks in which blend jazz rock, Arabic music, funk and choral symphonies.

If the merger of Western sounds (such as progressive rock on this album represented by the Solar Plexus Group) with typically middle eastern harmonies was not so unusual in the course of the 70s, this work is characterized by the insertion of classical choral harmonies performed by The Choir of The Large Choral Society Södertälje, Södertälje The Chamber Choir and The Östertälje Intermediate School Choir.

Among the most successful songs include undoubtedly the classic "Ah ya zen" which with its 17 minutes provides a perfect cross-section of musical possibilities of this strange formation and the song "The Oriental Express Train", an original composition of Abd el Rahman el Khatib which offers a new way of interpreting classical Arabic song.

Reprinted by the French label Pathé Marconi in 1974 with a different cover, the disc will become over the years a collector's item.

Abd el Rahman el Khatib (1922-2013) è stato un musicista egiziano, cantante e suonatore di Oud . Trasferitosi temporaneamente in Svezia per motivi scolastici finirà per fare base stabilmente nella regione scandinava intraprendendo la carriera di insegnante di musica . La prima possibilità di far conoscere la sua arte gli fu data dall’etichetta discografica svedese “ Frikyrkliga Studieförbundet “ che pubblicò nel 1966 un 7” accreditato a suo nome intitolato “ Det Låter Som Musik “ . Il disco , registrato con l’ausilio di due musicisti svedesi ( Björn Lindh al flauto e Bengt-Olov Palmqvist alle percussioni), presenta 5 brani appartenenti alla tradizione musicale araba eseguiti canonicamente , senza sbavature ed innovazioni .
L’incontro , agli inizi degli anni ‘70 , con il gruppo Prog-rock svedese Solar Plexus consentirà a Abd el Rahman el Khatib , che nel frattempo ha adottato il nome d’arte Abdo, la realizzazione di un album davvero particolare. Intitolato “ Salma “ , pubblicato nella sua prima edizione dall’etichetta Odeon su licenza EMI nel 1973, l’album è composto da 5 lunghe tracce nelle quali si fondono jazz rock, musica araba , funk e sinfonie corali. 
Se la fusione di sonorità smaccatamente occidentali (quali il rock progressivo rappresentato in quest’album dal gruppo Solar Plexus) con armonie tipicamente medio orientali non è stata cosi inusuale nel corso degli anni ‘70 , questo lavoro si distingue per l’inserzione delle armonie corali di impostazione classica eseguite da The Large Choir Of The Södertälje Choral Society , The Södertälje Chamber Choir e The Östertälje Intermediate School Choir . 
Tra i brani più riusciti figurano senza dubbio il classico "Ah ya zen" che con i suoi 17 minuti offre un perfetto spaccato delle possibilità musicali di questa strana formazione e il brano “The Oriental Express Train” , composizione originale di Abd el Rahman el Khatib che propone un nuovo modo di interpretare la canzone classica araba.
Ristampato dall’etichetta francese Pathè Marconi nel 1974 con una differente copertina, il disco diverrà negli anni un oggetto molto ricercato da i collezionisti.

Cherifa Kersit شريفة كرسيت

Née en 1967 dans une famille de seize enfants à Tazrut Mu Uxbu dans la région de Khénifra, Chérifa Kersit a fait ses débuts, dès son jeune âge, dans les mariages et les fêtes du village. Comme la plupart des filles de l’époque, elle n’a pu fréquenter l’école et a appris à chanter dans les collines et les vallées du Moyen-Atlas. Malgré l’opposition de ses parents, Chérifa s’est lancée dans son aventure artistique en tant que professionnelle. Sa rencontre avec de grands artistes amazighs tels Rouicha et Meghni, lui permettra de connaître le grand public et une certaine renommée nationale. Avec sa voix imposante et exceptionnelle, elle s’illustrera comme une chanteuse amazighe confirmée à l’instar de Hadda Ouâkki, Rqya Abbou, Tamhaoucht mais restera toujours à l’ombre de ces grandes stars de la chanson amazighe .
Cest lors de sa première visite en France à loccasion du spectacle Danses et chants des femmes du Maroc organisé à Paris en septembre 1999 que Cherifa Kersit a pu imposer son art et ses interprétations du patrimoine poétique et rythmique de sa région natale, le Moyen Atlas marocain.

Suite à cette occasion réalisera son premier album solo intitulé «blues berbère», publié en 2002.
Avec cet album, Cherifa réhabilite, par sa performance et sa voix puissante, lart des cheikhats (chanteuses) resté longtemps méprisé par un certain public. Lentremêlement de la « débauche » et du féminin dans ce style musical, né dans les transformations de la société marocaine et en particulier dans les centres urbains, a oeuvré à sa marginalisation. Après une période où elle a joué le rôle daccompagnatrice des grands chanteurs du Moyen Atlas, Cherifa saffirme donc comme une chanteuse-cheikhat autonome et impose son style personnel.

La déclaration et l'indépendance artistique lui permettra de connaître un franc succès avec sa participation dans plusieurs festivals en Europe et au Royaume. Sa poésie profonde et métaphorique, comme c’est le cas souvent dans les vers amazighs, traite du bonheur, de l’amour, de la tristesse mais porte aussi sur des thèmes philosophiques de la vie. Diva et reine de la musique amazighe, actuellement Chérifa est incontestablement une voix noble comme l’indique son nom. Une voix aérienne, puissante et rugueuse qui crée une atmosphère de grandeur et une ambiance indescriptible. Une grande force émane de cette voix sensuelle.
Elle excelle dans la Tamawait (échanges de vers poétiques aux thèmes diversifiés) qui nécessite généralement une grande force vocale et entame une chanson avec des mélodies de Loutar rythmées ensuite par les bendirs.

En 2008, elle obtient le Prix des Arts pour la chanson traditionnelle décerné par Institut royal de la culture amazighe avec Hadda Ouâkki et Ahmed Bizmaouen. Elle se produit sur diverses scènes françaises et marocaines, au festival Moonfest Lala Takerkoust en 2011, en 2012 au festival international de Merzouga des musiques du monde, et en 2012, 2013 et 2015 au festival de Fès des musiques sacrées du monde.

Cherifa Kersit è una delle principali esponenti della canzone Amazigh marocchina., nata nel 1967 a Tazrut Mu Uxbu nella regione di Khénifra da una famiglia contadina composta da sedici figli . Come la maggior parte delle ragazze originarie di zone rurali, ha dovuto abbandonare precocemente il suo percorso scolastico ed ha iniziato ad esibirsi come cantante fin dalla giovane età, in occasione di matrimoni e feste di paese.

Una dei momenti più importanti del suo percorso artistico è rappresentato sicuramente dall'incontro con Mohamed Roiucha il quale nel corso degli anni '80 contribuirà alla sua affermazione come cantante professionista malgrado la riluttanza e l'ostilità dei genitori.

Le sue esibizioni al fianco del famoso musicista berbero le permetteranno di farsi conoscere dal grande pubblico e le procureranno una certa fama a livello nazionale.

Seppur dotata di una voce potente e ruvida capace di creare atmosfere particolari è rimasta comunque per vari anni all'ombra delle grandi stelle della canzone amazigh svolgendo il ruolo di accompagnatrice di vari cantanti più affermati,  non riuscendo a registrare mai un brano a suo nome.

E 'stato durante la sua prima visita in Francia, in occasione dello Spettacolo dedicato alle danze e ai canti delle donne del Marocco tenutosi a Parigi nel settembre 1999,  che Cherifa Kersit ha potuto imporre la sua arte e le sue interpretazioni del patrimonio poetico e ritmico della sua regione natale, il Medio Atlante marocchino.

In seguito a questa occasione realizzerà il suo primo album come solista intitolato “ Berber blues “ uscito nel 2002. Con questo album Cherifa riabiliterà l'arte delle cheikhats (cantanti) disprezzata da un certo pubblico per lungo tempo e contribuirà alla fine dell'emarginazione della donna in uno stile musicale fino allora considerato fonte di dissolutezza.

La realizzazione dell'album e la conseguente fama , in virtù della sua partecipazione a vari festival europei, le consentiranno l'affermazione del suo stile personale,  fatto che non le impedirà di continuare il suo ruolo di accompagnatrice di grandi cantanti in svariate occasioni.

Considerata una delle regine della musica amazigh , specializzata nell'arte del Tamawait , Cherifa Kersit ha vinto nel 2008 il premio delle arti assegnato dal Reale Istituto della Cultura Amazigh assieme ai suoi colleghi Hadda Ouâkki e Ahmed Bizmaouen. Ha partecipato a vari festival musicali sia in Francia che in Marocco tra i quali : il Moonfest di Lalla Takerkoust nel 2011, il festival internazionale di Merzouga nel 2012 e il festival di musica sacra di Fez negli anni 2012, 2013 e 2015 .

Mohamed Rouicha محمد رويشة

Mohamed Houari,dit Mohamed Rouicha, (né le 1er janvier 1950 à M'Rirt - mort le 17 janvier 2012 à Khénifra) est un chanteur Amazigh marocain spécialiste du ouatar ou loutar, un instrument de musique marocain apparenté à l'Oud plus rustique.

Issu d'une famille modeste, il quitte l'école «Dyour Chiouks» de Khénifra à l'âge de 11 ans. Il commence à jouer à Loutar en 1964, notamment dans des cercles traditionnels de musiciens. La même année, Rouicha se lance dans l'interprétation de la chanson traditionnelle berbère et produit déjà un premier disque en collaboration de la chaîne marocaine RTV1.

Mohamed Rouicha qui pose sa voix de manière chaleureuse, obtient progressivement une renommée dans son pays grâce à des titres tels que Ya lehbiba, bini w'binek darou lehdouden en Tamazight et arabe.

Les thèmes des textes de Rouicha évoquent dans un style populaire purement traditionnel, l'amour, la nature, la justice (que ce soit dans le monde profane ou religieux), la politique, la vie et la mort.

En 2004, il se produit avec ses musiciens dans les ruines romaines de Volubilis dans le cadre du Festival de Fès des musiques sacrées du monde

En juillet 2010, il est invité à chanter pour inaugurer le festival des Gorges de Tinghir qui a eu lieu le 28, 29 et 30 juillet dans la commune de Tinghir. Un rendez-vous qui lui tient très à cœur dans la mesure où sa mère est originaire de cette commune de plusieurs dizaines de milliers d'habitants. En effet, avant même de commencer à jouer à Loutar, il n'oublie surtout pas de le rappeler avec cette phrase : «mimiss n'moulay Lahcen, mimiss n'lala Aicha iliss n'moulay Hanafi oult tdoght.», littéralement traduit: «fils de Moulay Lahcen, fils de Lala Aicha fille de Moulay Hanafi originaire de Toudgha. », une phrase qui rappelle que l'artiste ne fait que revenir aux sources pour jouer dans la région dont sa mère est originaire, à savoir la vallée du Toudra2.

Après une carrière de près de 50 ans, Mohamed Rouicha est décédé3 , le mardi 17 janvier 2012 suite à une détérioration fulgurante de son état de santé le matin de ce même jour et a succombé avant même son arrivée à l'hôpital .

(Source : Wikipedia)

Mohamed Rouicha , nato il 1 Gennaio 1950 a M'Rirt presso Khenifra , è stato un poeta, cantante e strumentista marocchino di origine berbera.

Nato in una famiglia modesta, Mohamed Rouicha lascio la scuola “ Dyour Chiouks “ di Khénifra all'età di 11 anni e si dedicò attivamente allo studio della musica . Scelse come strumento privilegiato il Louatar, un cordofono imparentato con L'Oud ma decisamente più rustico, del quale diverrà con il tempo uno degli specialisti riconosciuti. Interrogato anni dopo circa la scelta di questo strumento Rouicha dirà : “ il Loutar uno strumento che è stato a rischio di estinzione. E' stato utilizzato nel Halka (il nostro vecchio teatro, del quale sono orgoglioso). Volevo salvarlo , è uno strumento storico che fa parte del nostro patrimonio”.

L'inizio ufficiale della sua carriera avviene nel 1964 con un lavoro presso la RTM (società marocchina di radio diffusione) nella divisione dedicata alla cultura Amazigh . Il canale televisivo marocchino RTV produce il suo primo album composto da canzoni legate alla tradizione berbera. I temi dei testi interessano l' amore, la natura, la giustizia (sia nel mondo laico che religioso), ma anche la politica, la vita, la morte , le ingiustizie e tematiche filosofiche molto vicine , come approccio, al sufismo.

Dotato di un timbro rilassato molto avvolgente , Mohammed Rouicha comincia a crearsi un nome all'interno del panorama musicale non solo marocchino.

Nel 1979 , dopo quindici anni di gavetta, viene confermato musicista professionista presso la RTM , ma il suo nome è già da tempo conosciuto e rispettato ed i suoi album acclamati ad ogni uscita.

Per più di quattro decenni produrrà album qualitativamente ottimi senza che la sua opera perda nulla in bellezza e lucentezza . In virtù della sua produzione sarà riconosciuto come ambasciatore della canzone berbera a livello internazionale .

Ammirato in egual misura sia nel mondo arabo che in occidente,
Mohammed Rouicha avrà modo di esibirsi nel corso della sua carriera in svariati festival musicali.

Memorabili saranno le sue apparizioni al festival di musica sacra di Fes nel 2004, in un concerto presso le rovine romane di Volubilis , e nel 2010 all'inaugurazione del festival des Gorges presso Tinghir, località della quale era nativa la madre.

Mohamed Rouicha morirà Martedì 17 Gennaio 2012 in seguito ad un rapido deterioramento del suo stato di salute lasciando quattro figli (due maschi e due femmine) ed un patrimonio musicale unico.

Ha  onorato il suo paese ogni giorno della sua vita , sempre accompagnato dal suo fedele strumento, offrendo decine di composizioni in lode al Medio Atlante, comportandosi come se il cosmo e la natura fossero sempre dalla sua parte . 

Con la sua morte il Marocco perderà uno dei suoi poeti più significativi.

Ibrahim Maalouf ابراهيم معلوف

Ibrahim Maalouf (born 5 December 1980) is a French-Lebanese trumpet player and teacher, composer and arranger. He was born in Beirut, Lebanon, and now lives in Paris, France.

Maalouf was born into a Lebanese family of intellectuals and artists; he is the son of trumpeter Nassim Maalouf and pianist Nada Maalouf, nephew of the writer Amin Maalouf and grandson of journalist, poet and musicologist Rushdi Maalouf. He is noted for playing Arabic music with quarter tones on the trumpet, which is a rare skill, pioneered by his father and Don Ellis in the 1960s.

Maalouf has also earned prizes in the major classical trumpet competitions in the world. In July 2010, he was awarded the Instrumental Revelation of the Year at the French Jazz Music Awards (Victoires du Jazz), and more recently was awarded Best World Music Artist at the French Music Awards in 2014.

Ibrahim has also composed several movie soundtracks, (Yves Saint Laurent (Jalil Lespert) 2014; Smart Ass (Kim Chapiron) 2013), and several pieces for choirs and symphonic orchestras.

After winning international classical music competitions, Ibrahim was well known for playing and recording with renown artists from different styles of music: Sting, Salif Keita, Amadou & Mariam, Lhasa de Sela, Marcel Khalifa, Vanessa Paradis, Juliette Greco, Archie Shepp,...

His family fled Lebanon in the midst of a Lebanese Civil War and Maalouf grew up in the Paris suburbs with both parents and his sister Layla, who is two years older than he is. He studied there until the age of 17 and earned a baccalauréat in General Science and Specialised Mathematics from the Lycée Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire in Étampes (Essonne).

He began to study the trumpet at the age of 7 with his father Nassim Maalouf, a former student of Maurice André at the Paris Higher National Conservatory of Music and Dance. His father taught him classical technique, baroque, classical, modern and contemporary repertoires, as well as classical Arabic music and the Arab art of improvisation and style. In fact, his father was the inventor of the micro-tonal trumpet, called “quarter tone trumpet”, which makes it possible to play Arab maqams on the trumpet. Another characteristic of these early years was that Maalouf began playing the piccolo trumpet very young. From the age of 9, he accompanied his father in a duo throughout Europe and the Middle East, playing a baroque repertoire by Antonio Vivaldi, Henry Purcell, Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni, etc... This was how he learned to play in front of an audience, and how audiences gradually began to become acquainted with him. When he was 15, Maalouf came to the attention of professional musicians when during a concert with a chamber orchestra, he interpreted the 2nd Brandenburg Concerto by Johann Sebastian Bach, considered by many trumpeters as the most difficult piece in the classical trumpet repertoire. Several years later, Maalouf met Maurice André, who encouraged him to go professional. This prompted Maalouf to abandon his scientific studies and dedicate himself entirely to his musical career.

Maalouf then successfully passed an open competition at the CNR de Paris (regional Conservatory) and joined the class of Gérard Boulanger for a two-year training course. After that, he passed another open competition and joined the CNSM de Paris (Higher National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris) in the class of Antoine Curé for a three-year training course. He obtained degrees from both of these schools, considered to be the top establishments in the field of classical music, but also during his five years of study, he entered national, European and international trumpet competitions in order to discover the full range of the trumpet repertoire and to develop his technical skill.

Between 1999 and 2003, Maalouf earned awards in 15 competitions throughout the world. His most prestigious prizes were 1st prize in the Hungarian International Trumpet Competition in Pilisvörösvár in May 2002, 1st prize in the National Trumpet Competition (Washington DC) in 2001 and 2nd prize (ex aequo) in the Maurice André International Competition in Paris in 2003, regarded as one of the two most prestigious international competitions. The Cziffra Foundation and the Pro-Europa Foundation, patroned by the Prince of Denmark also contributed significantly to the launch of his international classical career.

From 2006 to 2013, Maalouf has been trumpet instructor at the CNR of Aubervilliers, La Courneuve in France, where he followed in the footsteps of the celebrated instructor André Presles. Maalouf is regularly invited to give master classes and recitals in France and abroad.

Maalouf also composes for different classical orchestras. He wrote more than 15 pieces for different ensembles from small to symphonic orchestras and choirs that were commissioned since 2005.

Ibrahim now teaches improvisation to classical musicians, (all instruments) at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris.

Maalouf has never abandoned the Arabic trumpet. Although competitions take up a large measure of his time, he nevertheless continues to explore music from other angles, in particular improvisation and composition with Arabic music and Jazz. During his studies at the Paris CNSM, he followed jazz classes as assiduously as he did classical trumpet classes. His training in jazz is self-taught, derived from his experience with Big Bands and with different groups he has played with at different times. He often plays in Paris jazz clubs, frequently changing from one band to another in pursuit of the sound he is interested in. In 2000, Maalouf met producer Marc-Antoine Moreau, who introduced him to the cellist Vincent Segal. It was the beginning of a long and fruitful series of encounters. Amadou & Mariam, Matthieu Chedid, Lhasa de Sela, Angel Parra, Jeanne Cherhal, Arthur H, Marcel Khalifé...between 2000 and 2007, Ibrahim performed with many internationally famous singers and musicians, discovering the musical trade while exploring his own sound. His last great partnership was with his friend, the French singer Vincent Delerm, who asked him to accompany him on a promotion tour for his album Les Piqûres d’Araignées, a tour that ended in June 2007. In November 2008, Maalouf played in the opera « Welcome to the Voice » at the Chatelet Theatre in Paris. Composed by Steve Nieve (Elvis Costello’s keyboardist) and directed by Muriel Teodori. On this occasion, Maalouf encountered on stage various artists including Elvis Costello, Sylvia Schwartz and Sting, who played the lead role in this performance. Sting asked him to play on one of the title songs of his October 2009 album. Maalouf then toured again with Vincent Delerm (January 2009) in a smaller formation where he derived a lot of pleasure from playing piano, wurlitzer, vibraphone, synthesizer, drums and trumpet, while finishing his second album, planned for the Fall 2009.

Maalouf has composed music since he was very young. He presented his compositions for the first time in 1999. His first group "Farah" had a relatively strong Oriental Jazz flavor because he was accompanied by a saxophone, a ney (Middle-Eastern end-blown flute), a transverse flute, a piano, a double bass, a guitar, a buzuq (a long-necked fretted lute related to the Greek bouzouki) and Arabic percussions. A concert recording by this group was broadcast on several music channels between 2004 and 2005. The group did some studio tests, but never produced an album.

In 2004, his encounter with Lhasa de Sela opened the doors of electro music to him. His collaboration with pop and rock singers made him discover other musical styles apart from jazz, classical music and Arabic music. Gradually, Ibrahim’s compositions began to reflect a more contemporary style. In 2006, after exploring many different musical paths, he met Alejandra Norambuena Skira (from the SACEM’s Action Fund), who introduced him to Jean-Louis Perrier. Jean-Louis helped him to form the band with whom he gave a concert on February 12, 2006 at the Paris New Morning Jazz Club. From that moment on, he became a recognized figure of the Paris Oriental Electro Jazz Scene.

His music and his trumpet playing are strongly inspired by his Arabic culture, but the instruments around him (bass, electric guitar, drums, Arabic percussion and vibraphones) and the musicians with whom he performs give a more contemporary rock, electro and Jazz-funk flavor to his music. His concerts are generally built around stimulating music that makes people want to get up and dance. But there is always a short, more contemplative, mystical interlude during his concerts, which he calls "a collective universal prayer". Maalouf gets a lot of his inspiration from his culture of origin. This subject has been explored in the documentary Souffle! (Blow), directed by Christophe Trahand and produced by Cocottes Minutes between 2005 and 2006. Christophe Trahand followed Ibrahim for several months in pursuit of the key to his inspiration and to explore his relationship with his native country and the distance that separates him from it. This documentary was broadcast by TV5 MONDE and is available on DVD in the collection Docnet Films.
