Guillaume Barraud & Mathieu Bélis will unveil their new album « Estampes » on its digital release October 14, 2022 and physical release November 4, 2022 on B&B Productions/InOuïe Distribution.
This new work will be presented live on stage on Thursday December 8, 2022 at
Les 2 Pianos (Paris).
After ten years of a fruitful partnership, this new project came about in the midst of the pandemic. Composers Mathieu Bélis and Guillaume Barraud teamed up again for a series of improvisations; and the result is a repertoire of intimate music pieces. From the synergy of the piano and the bansuri (North-Indian transverse flute) emerges a language of its own. The striking of the strings and the breath through the bamboo intertwine to deliver a colourful canvas of sounds. It is an ode to journey, an invitation to fly away and explore an eclectic universe of contemporary jazz brewed with classical, pop and traditional elements.
