Sinouj Sinouj

Sinouj is an Afromediterranean band that mixes musical traditions from the Magreb and the Middle East with contemporary Jazz, Funk, and African Music. Sinouj integrates its Arabic rhythms and modes into a modern vision of Jazz and Funk with a light electronic flavor. The group's sound is marked by its unique combination of the Saxophone and the Oriental Violin with a powerful African rhythm section as well as with its harmonic and electronic touches provided by the keyboards. The richness and originality of the project is owed to the diversity of its members' musical and geographical backgrounds: Spain, Tunisia, Nigeria, Italy The Spaniard Pablo Hernández on alto sax has played with many different jazz, rock, funk, rai, and Arab music bands: Jorge Pardo, Javier Paxariño, Charbel Rouhana, Nass Marrakech, Wast el Balad etc. Larbi Sassi, on the violin, is regarded as one of the best performers of Arab music in the whole Maghreb, and he played in his country Tunisia and abroad, with the best bands and singers of this music. The rhythm section is leaded by the drums of the Nigerian, Akin Onasanya. He is one of the most demanded drummers in Madrid to play jazz, funk, r&b or African music and lead the afrobeat project Ogun Afrobeat.

”Sinouj y Jorge Pardo encajan como un puzzle, cada pieza está formada por sonidos exquisitos, exóticos, regados por dos saxofonistas de alta escuela.

Un saxo alto con todas las influencias del jazz, teclados con toques acústicos y una base r�-tmica que mezcla los sonidos africanos más envolventes con toques de tumbao cubano. Este grupo convence, tiene calidad y un sonido diferente. No hay que perderle de vista
