SHARQI BLUES & MAGHREB JAZZ
Innovating crossovers, navigating the crosscurrents between guitar-led jazz and Northafrican & Middle Eastern music. Guitarplayer Jan Wouter Oostenrijk and his group will bring us in Belly Ecstasy! Technically gifted, original, with emotion and sense of adventure.
Jan Wouter gained international fame with his Maghreb Jazz & Sharqi Blues formation and toured throughout North Africa . New is his modified ‘Quartertone Guitar’ with which he brings the authentic Sahara sounds to the Netherlands. Reinforced with top Syrian musicians singer Shaza Hayek and Modar Salama, the band takes you on an unforgettable trip.
The concert is the kick off for the We Are Connected/ Dutch in the Desert NL Tour 2019
Shaza Hayek – Vocals, Modar Salama- percussion, Marco van den Akker – bass, Achim Heine – drums, Jan Wouter – guitar
In the 70’s and 80’s Arabic countries had a very interesting mash-up of cultures. The Middle-East and North Africa were influenced by different spheres through politics, religion and ideologies. The music of that time was also caught up in these intersections. Artists created new traditional Arabic music and combined it with funky Western influences.
Disco Arabesquo portrays this ‘splash of civilizations’ by selecting unique songs to showcase this creative cultural contamination and a generation searching for a new identity. #DiscoArabesquo
