The Koum Tara project is a meeting of four musical universes around the same project, created and lead by the pianist and composer Karim Maurice : traditional Châabi music, classic string quartet, contemporary music and jazz.
Musical themes have been worked, warped, re-harmonized and restructured in order to build a cross-breeding of all these cultures in a unique and mixed show, each musician bringing his own identity and specific skills to the project.
We are invited to embark on an authentic cultural journey offering a unique combination of music and true fusion of styles thanks to the diversity of the band.
Poetry and traditional Châabi melodies merge with the tradition of occidental string quartet, jazz improvisation and electronic music.
The distorting prism used here is the artistic vehicle enabling a real fusion of styles and genres in a single piece.
At a time when humanity, respect for cultures and tolerance appear to be necessary values in order to create a better world, this show offers a musical universe where each musician brings his own cultural heritage and contributes to the group through its singularity, in order to pass on a message of universal love.
La Camerata, Koum Tara’s producer, is supported by the Ville de Lyon (France), Centre National de la Musique (CNM) and the Spedidam, and is a member of the FEVIS
With the support of the Consulat général de France à Québec
