Horzines Stara will unveil their new album « Bords de Terre – Dubhe » on its digital release May 20, 2022 and physical release June 17, 2022 on Vlad Productions / InOuïe Distribution. This new work will be presented live on stage on Thursday June 30, 2022 at Studio de L’Ermitage (Paris).
« Bords de terre is the sandy beach that ends and welcomes the passage of all borders, the opening of possibilities for migrations and the great stellar void, without firm ground to cling to, without roots to plant. The album aim is to question the borders in all senses, whether they are those of the musical genre, of the structure, of the ages, of the emotions, of the sensations. Duhbe is a constellation and a dreamlike point of view that we want to bring to the world.
With four polyphonic voices supported by acoustic instruments, the traditional style takes hold. By installing evolving melodic-rhythmic loops, the progressive aspect resonates with the traditional. The pop bass of the cello mingles with the mixed melodies of the guitar; the percussion ranging from the djembe to the cave tom ricochets on the rhythmic accents of the bellow shake accordion: Horzines Stara plays with pleasure running from one style to another. The inspiration comes from artists such as Khadja Bonet, Dikanda, Las Lloronas and Fatoumata Diawara. The vocal harmonies, characteristic of the group, affirm this poetic freedom.
In our creative process, freedom is paramount. Musical roles are exchanged. We seek to put our relationship with the cycles of life into music. Birth, growth, old age, death, night, dawn, zenith, dusk… Cyclesrepeat themselves and sometimes break. After four years of research, the album Bords de terre – Dubhe was born thanks to a collaboration with Fanny Massière, the studio Zéphirand the label Vlad. It is our musical testimony, our herbarium. »
