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. Sergio Salvi, on the keyboards and computer programming, gives the band the balance between the rhythm and the front section, thanks to his smart use of electronics and acoustics sounds

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

Este grupo convence, tiene calidad y un sonido diferente. No hay que perderle de vista

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
