Morocco La magie de l’évidence

Lutist Alaa Zouiten and bassist Didier Del Aguila presented a concert accompanied by percussionist Jean Luc Di Fraya.

“Telle était l’impression qu’a laissée la rencontre entre Alaa Zouiten et Didier Del Aguila à Rabat  lors d’une Jam Session dans le cadre de la dernière édition du Festival Chellah. Dès lors Alaa décide de s’unir avec Didier Del Aguila sur un projet musical commun : celui de la transculturalité musicale qui tend à mettre l’essence en éveil. Etant conscient de la force que peut générer leur différences culturelles et musicales, ils ne cessent de mélanger les styles sur des compositions originales, allant du Jazz passant par le Flamenco jusqu’aux sonorités orientales et africaines. Alaa est accompagné sur scène  par un autre musicien talentueux : Jean Luc Di Fraya à la batterie/percussions. Actuellement Alaa Zouiten travaille sur la sortie d’un nouvel album « Talking Oud » 2015 avec notamment Didier Del Aguila en « special guest ».
