The Masmoudi Quartette is made up of pianist Guillaume Martineau, double bassist Rémi-Jean LeBlanc, clarinetist Gabriel Paquin-Buki and oudist Mohamed Masmoudi, who is its artistic director. Recognized for their versatility, sensitivity and virtuosity, the four musicians present Eternal Cities, their first album in which the long and rich tradition of oriental music permeates each of Masmoudi’s compositions with its modes (maqamat) and metrics. Crossed with improvisations which sometimes borrow from the language of jazz, sometimes from classical subtleties, sprinkled with klezmer inflections and tango rhythms, Masmoudi’s works bear witness to the richness of a life begun in Tunisia and continued an ocean further, with a host of influences raked together along the way, in a process of real openness and experience.
