Marc Amouyal

(Judeo-Spanish, France) For Marc Amouyal, the Mediterranean music is that of his childhood. In the tradition of the troubadours, he performs romansas and kantikas.

Rhythms and improvisation supported by new harmonies dexterously color this vast and rich repertoire of a touch of originality and modernity.

It is traditional in the Jewish culture to sing. Whether celebrations, love and liturgy, these songs, rocked to the rhythm of the Mediterranean and in perfect respect for the oral tradition, have survived even in the darkest moments.

Beyond a quality of melodious interpretation that blends sounds of oud, cajon, bouzouki, clarinet and double bass, the Ensemble Marc Amouyal invites us on a journey around the Mediterranean sea.
