Dhafer Youssef & Divine Shadows Orchestra – 2012 - JazzOnze+ Festival Lausanne

On l’adore, ce sera sa 4e venue à JazzOnze+. Natif de Tunisie, chanteur, joueur d’oud et compositeur, Dhafer baigne depuis l’enfance dans la musique et la tradition soufi. Féru de rencontres et d’improvisations, il a créé une œuvre très personnelle chargée d’émotion, faite d’alchimie intelligente entre l’univers du jazz européen et celui des musiques du sud de la Méditerranée.
Il y a à peine deux ans, il était là sur cette scène de la salle Paderewski,  entouré d’un trio de grands talents où brillait le jeune pianiste prodige Tigran Hamasyan. A l’issue d’un concert charismatique où l’émotion sillonnait de larmes les visages de maints spectateurs, nous nous étions jurés de le faire revenir au plus vite.

Il nous avait parlé de son projet d’amplifier sa musique avec un orchestre à cordes. C’est chose faite maintenant et, après un premier concert sublime à Bratislava, il nous a réservé la primeur de ce projet. C’est donc avec son quartette entouré par quinze musiciens de Bratislava qu’il revient faire résonner oud et voix.

Porté par ce somptueux entourage de cordes slovaques, nul doute que Dhafer ne revienne nous envoûter et faire voyager comme si nous étions montés sur un tapis volant.

Dhafer Youssef

Abu Nwas Rhapsody paints, perhaps, the broadest picture of Youssef of any single album to date, with its focus on a consistent lineup and the resultant chemistry. Without dismissing the inestimable strengths of Youssef’s playing, singing and composing, Abu Nawas Rhapsody’s greatest energy and strength comes from an ideal trio of collaborators, who turn it into his hottest session to date.

Track List:

  1. Aya (12:52)
  2. Interl’oud – Odd Elegy (12:45)
  3. Les Ondes Orientales (14:53)
  4. Khamsa (The Khamriyyat Of Abu Nawas) (08:36)

Dhafer Youssef - Abu Nawas Rhapsody

Album: Abu Nawas Rhapsody
Artist: Dhafer Youssef
Country: Tunisia

Dhafer Youssef (born 1967 in Teboulba, Tunisia) is a composer, vocalist, and oud player. He has been living and working in various European countries since 1990. During this time he had the opportunity to perform his music on stages in Austria, France, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and other countries as well as his native Tunisia (where he started singing in the Islamic tradition  at age 5 ).

Dhafer Youssef’s music is rooted in the Sufi tradition and other mystical music but has always been wide open to ideas from any other musical culture as well as the jazz scene. With his poetic approach on the oud (the Arabic lute), his complex Arab-colored compositions and especially his deeply affecting singing when humming along with his melodies, Dhafer Youssef is one of the most impressive voices to emerge in this musical field in many years. Testifying a wide range of sound colors, stylistic facets and musical ingredients, Dhafer Youssef opens the way to a new definition of East-Western crossover.
