As a demanding soloist and experienced composer, she has been the founder of creative jazz groups since 2005. She has explored contemporary jazz writing, colored with various influences from world and repetitive music, such as the Inama sextet in 2008 (1st prize of Esprit Jazz Saint-Germain-Des-Prés Festival and composition prize of La Défense Competition), the ESP in 2011 and the Maracuja quartet, with whom she has been touring for 10 years. First Prize in composition and flute at the Créteil Conservatory, holder of a master’s degree in jazz at the University of Paris 8, she has enriched her musical universe since 2011 by collaborating with numerous musicians from the world music scene. Since 2011 she has traveled regularly to Brazil, where she collaborates with the great musicians Hermeto Pascoal and Itiberê Zwarg. In 2022, she participates in the large orchestra project Orquestra Familia da França with the composer and bassist Itiberê Zwarg, in partnership with the Sons d’Hiver festival, which gives rise to several concerts and the production of a live album, released in February 2024. Maracuja: Created in 2012 by Amina Mezaache, Maracuja is the fruit of the meeting of 4 talented musicians eager to cross the influences of jazz and improvisation with the richness of Brazilian music. This quartet of variable geometry is distinguished by an original instrumentation, which combines the timbres of Amina’s flutes with those of Fabien Debellefontaine’s sousaphone, Yoan Fernandez’s guitar and Jonathan Edo’s multiple percussions. In the tradition of Brazilian avant-garde composers, such as Egberto Gismonti, Hermeto Pascoal, Guinga, but also inspired by traditional and afro-descendant, music, Amina Mezaache’s compositions are conceived as so many colorful and contrasting paintings, which explore combinations of timbres and encounters between rhythms.

This new work will be presented live on stage on Thursday May 2, 2024 at Studio de L’Ermitage (Paris). Their first single "Fango" will be available on February 16, 2024 across all digital platforms.

Los Guayabo Brothers approach their Colombian identity in a more introspective way (Origins) and also evoke their adopted French culture (El Francer).

Claudia Meyer presents “La Negra”

Claudia Meyer will unveil her new album "La Negra - Tribute to Mercedes Sosa, The voice of Latin America" on its release March 22, 2024, on Kobbi Prod / InOuïe Distribution. This new work will be presented live on stage on Thursday April 25, 2024 at Café de la Danse (Paris). The first single, "La Maza", has been available on all platforms since 26 January 2024. This album is based on the musical show. The original and innovative character of Claudia Meyer’s interpretation brings back to life the musical itinerary of this artist, internationally known for her voice, “the voice of silent people”. This album retraces the different steps of her life as an artist and as a woman. The album includes two duets: an exceptional one with Mercedes Sosa, and one with Maurane, to whom the album is dedicated. A word about Mercedes Sosa: "Mercedes Sosa is the voice that influenced me, she took me into her story and I plunged into her music. Although I am not a South American and Spanish is not my mother tongue, I was seized and taken by this culture and its musicality and overwhelmed by the power of her emotionally rich voice. I was sensitive to her story, to her life as a woman, to her commitment to the poorest and to the immense interpreter that she was. She has always been part of my musical itinerary, I have been singing her since I was a teenager and have paid tribute to her on my previous 2 albums Azul et Fuego. I am very moved and happy to revive her music on stage, and on the album “La Negra”." Claudia Meyer The album: The album and the show offer a mix of tradition and modernity, readapted by Claudia Meyer and Marc Benabou “Marquito” on percussions. Even though she remained faithful to original versions, Claudia Meyer brings her personal touch by playing ethnic instruments such as the charango, the cuatro, and particularly the bombo (andean drums) which Mercedes Sosa used to play on stage. The album is identical to the live show, a deliberate intention to reflect the proximity and the intimacy formed by Mercedes Sosa and her guitarist, Nicolas Brizuela.

Johanni Curtet presents “If Only I Could Hibernate”

Johanni Curtet will unveil his new album “If Only I Could Hibernate” on its release January 5, 2024, on Buda Musique / Socadisc and Amygdala Films & Urban Factory. "If Only I Could Hibernate" is the original soundtrack to the film by Zoljargal Purevdash, (French release 01/10/24), which was part of the Official Selection of the Cannes Film Festival (Un Certain Regard 2023). With : Johanni Curtet: composition, beatbox, khöömii, throat singing, guitar, doshpuluur lute, jaw harps, carillon Mandakhjargal Daansuren: morin khuur fiddle, khöömii, throat singing Kham Meslien: double bass Recorded and mixed by Bob Coke. Johanni Curtet is a musician, ethnomusicologist, producer and artistic director of Routes Nomades. For 20 years, he has been practicing and studying khöömii - Mongolian overtone singing - experimenting it through various creations. Several records of his production have been released by Buda musique: Tserendavaa & Tsogtgerel (2008), An Anthology of Mongolian Khöömii (2017), Khusugtun (2020), Batsükh Dorj (2023), as well as creations of his trio Meïkhâneh. With this soundtrack, Johanni signs a double premiere, a film score and a record in his name. This film is a cry from the heart for Mongolia perceived through the harsh daily life of a family in Ulaanbaatar: the abandoned yurt neighborhoods, the daily fight to survive the winter, the pollution of the coldest capital in the world, the question of equal opportunities, but also social issues such as the rural exodus and the gap between the nomadic presence and urban planning. Beyond the problems, Ulzii, the main character, embodies a great hope which pervades the entire story. The overtone voice is the continuity of this path of hope strewn with doubts that Ulzii follows, but also reminds his region of origin, Altai. Like his life, the instrumentarium is simple: guitar, doshpuluur lute, morin khuur fiddle, double bass, jaw harps and beatbox; just like their way of playing. This music is at the same time minimal, cheerful, soft or angry, repetitive to the point of stubbornness, like the moods that pass through the questions of this teenager who is trying to make it. It refers to Mongolian identity to become universal. The pentatonic modes rub shoulders with dissonances or blues, while seeking sometimes the rhythms from other nomadic cultures. Meanwhile, the discreet harmonic presence is everywhere.
