FanfaraïFrench from Britany, French Algerians, French Moroccans, French who suddenly discover that they are Algerians, jazz musicians who suddenly discover a passion for the Maghrebian 6/8… and begin to sing in Arabic, Berber or Turkish and to dance like the Gnawa… These funny boasters make up the FANFARAI band, a Rai UFO matured in the copper sun of North Africa. These ten to twelve musicians of various cultural backgrounds revisit the tradition of festive wanderings and blend skilfully brasses, traditional percussion’s, Arabo-Berber, Afro-Cuban, Latin and Jazz sounds. They perform very energetic street and stage shows in which they are often joined by other musicians or dancers. Their second albumm ‘Tani’ was released in 2013.
