Having travelled the world with Jordi Savall, 3MA (Ballaké Sissoko and Rajery), Paolo Fresu, Debashish Bhattacharya and Montserrat Figueras and having lent his oud playing to Armand Amar and Laurent Voulzy, Driss El Maloumi has returned home…In Agadir, at the crossroads of Arab, Amazigh, western and sub-Saharan cultures, he invites his oud to distill the spices gleaned from a thousand travelled paths.

Quietly, simply, in intimate dialogue with two percussionists, so that his instrument can fully express his desire to revel in the contact with other essences, other colours.

His last album MAKAN (Label Contre-Jour) « established him as one of the instrument’s finest performers » (Songlines)
