CHOUF-Melody of Rhythm
Thee musician-magicians, connected at the their cores, encourage un to discover an energetic
and poetic universe of sound dreams and bewitching trances. This new mixture of musical tradition marries catchy choruses with deep sways and bends, conjured from a divine balance of Western jazz, Moroccan Gnawa spirituals, and Senegalese strings.
Initially a duo, founding members Hamid Khadiri ( Sintir/guembri, voice, Perc) and Lionel Friedli (drum kit) forged the recognizable sonic identity of thegroup.The collective became a trio with the addition of Issa Kouyaté (Kora, voice), progeny of famed griot/jali storytellers in his native Senegal.
Chouf celebrates life and world cultures in their own captivating and dreamlike musical language. From one continent to another, they pursue unique new journeys built on ancient pathways. Fortunately, their mysterious wisdom is matched by generosity, and now the discovery begins for us al
