Mazal (Emmanuelle Rouvray & Thomas Baudriller)
Tzadik, coll. Radical Jewish Culture, 04-2011
For the first time Sefardi music meets electronic music !
In this CD, the French duet Mazal, with Emmanuelle Rouvray (vocals, percussions) and Thomas Baudriller (programming, sampler, bass, doublebass, mandoline), perform 10 traditional Sefardi songs in a musical electro-dance environment
This blending of oral tradition and musical modernity wants to resemble to the Judeo-Spanish culture, full of Eastern and Western amalgams since the Middle Ages.Thanks to the electronic sounds rich rhythms, Mazal opens the gates for a possible intercultural reconciliation, beyond time and words, and blows an air of modernity, creating the encounter, an energic and dancing wave.
