“This album was dedicated to a woman and a town but also was a dream com-ing true. The idea was to put together Talvin Singh, Erik Truffaz and me. We were all influenced by drum&bass at some point of our career and we all loved deeply Istanbul…”
Maalouf & Singh around Smadj: pure explosive genius
There are the concerts of the week, those of the month or the moment, and then there are those of the year or even the decade or a lifetime. It is undoubtedly to this second category that the live given at the Café de la Danse by Smadj belongs, accompanied by the immense trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf and the rhythmic genius Talvin Singh.
A masterful trio, carried as much by the power of the compositions performed as by the palpable admiration that these 3 exceptional musicians carry between them: bewitching.
