Ishtar Connection is a surprising but catchy alchemy between world music and electro, shaped by a master of Middle Eastern music Fawzy Al-Aiedy and four young musicians from a contemporary background : Vincent Boniface, multi-instrumentalist, Amin Al-Aiedy, arrangements and oud, Sylvain Ratovondrahety, keyboard, Adrien Al-Aiedy (Alias Adrien Drums), drums and pad.
These contemporary sounds echo the spirit of secular Oriental music. Electric oud melodies and Arab vocals mix with synth textures, bagpipes and other acoustic instruments to an unexpected harmony and groove, perfectly arranged.
Echoing recent events in the Arab world, both tragic and hopeful, the goddess Ishtar, a major and fascinating figure in Mesopotamian mythology, symbol of duality and opposites, inspired and guided the musicians.
Ishtar Connection bridges Orient and Occident, tradition and modernity and offers space for freedom and imagination, for festive encounters of cultures dancing together...
Welcome to the Oriental "Fest Noz".
