Anouar Brahem

2014 is almost over. The only regret I have is that, once again, I didn’t make enough of an effort to go and see Anouar Brahem live. I love his music, the astonishing sensitivity he displays on his instrument and the lyrical universe he can create with seemingly little effort. If you decide to explore said universe, which also happens to be an incredibly rhythmic one, I would recommend my two favorite recordings, Le Pas du Chat Noir (ECM 1792) with Francois Couturier and Jean-Louis Matinier and Barzakh (ECM 1432) with Lassad Hosni and Bechir Selmi.
