A Few Melodies

If the conversation turns to jazz, trumpets and France, then we’re talking about Ibrahim Maalouf. For years, the French-Lebanese musician has been blowing the roof off venues such as the Accor Arena in Paris, the Lincoln Jazz Center in New York or the Kennedy Center in Washington with his cinematic, rhythmic, versatile and totally uninhibited jazz. In a word: spectacular. Since he was discovered by Quincy Jones and described by the New York Times as a “virtuoso”, Ibrahim Maalouf has released 16 albums and worked with Sting, Salif Keita, Amadou et Mariam, Wynton Marsalis, Lhasa De Sela, Melody Gardot, Vanessa Paradis, Vincent Delerm and Trilok Gurtu. He’s also won awards such as the César for best original music for the film In the Forests of Siberia (2017) and a Grammy nomination for best world music album for his joint album with Angelique Kidjo, Queen of Sheba (2022). Jazz, oriental music or rock (in any of its manifestations) flow together in his music with total ease. If you don’t believe, just check out Capacity To Love (2022), a proclamation of tolerance, respect and integration between cultures, with collaborations with Gregory Porter, Posdnuos (De La Soul), Tony Romera and JP Cooper.
