Info for Kalthoum

Trompeter Ibrahim Maalouf, 1980 in Beirut zur Welt gekommen, ist in Frankreich bereits ein richtiger Star, seine Reputation spricht sich aber auch im Rest der Welt immer mehr herum. Er wirkte auf Alben von Sting, Georges Moustaki und Vanessa Paradis mit, komponierte die Musik zu Filmen wie „Smart Ass“ und „Yves Saint Laurent“ und spielte bereits fünf erfolgreiche Alben unter eigenem Namen ein.

Mit „Kalthoum“ und dem direkt darauf folgenden zweiten Album „Red & Black Light“ gibt er jetzt sein Impulse-Debüt. Lyrischer, technisch brillanter Jazz mit einem Hauch von Weltmusik, von einem Künstler, dessen Namen man nun auch bei uns öfter hören wird.
