Ishtar Connection is a surprising but catchy alchemy between world music and electro, shaped by Fawzy Al-Aiedy, master of Middle Eastern music, and three young artists from a contemporary background : Vincent Boniface, multi-instrumentalist from Aosta Valley (Italy), Amin Al-Aiedy (bass guitar, arrangement), Adrien Drums (drums, launching of electronic sounds made by Gstn).
Who could be better than this new generation, raised between two cultures ?
And what better name to choose than Ishtar, a famous and fascinating figure in Mesopotamian mythology, the goddess of love and war, who united these two opposites ?
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.
And don’t we say that music is one of the greatest connectors between people around the world ?
Ishtar Connection strenghtens the bridge between East and West.
Welcome to the Oriental Fest Noz.
