GUILLAUME BARRAUD QUARTETThe Indo-Jazz Sessions

GUILLAUME BARRAUD : bansuri flutes & composition
TAM DE VILLIERS : electric guitar
JOHANN BERBY : bass guitar
XAVIER ROGÉ : drums
An exhilarating fusion of Indian Music and contemporary jazz with some of Paris’ finest musicians. Refracting the spirit of India through the prism of jazz, Guillaume Barraud launches ‘Arcana: The Indo-Jazz Sessions’ (on Riverboat) finding a sound that floats timelessly whilst bubbling with restless energy; setting the pure tones of the bansuri flute against hard-edged electric guitar and moody, grooving bass and drums.
As the leader and composer for this project, he surrounded himself with a trio of virtuoso musicians with solid references (TRILOK GURTU, IBRAHIM MAALOUF…) with British guitarist Tam De Villiers, bassist Johann Berby from Reunion Island and Belgian drummer Xavier Rogé. The album was recorded ‘live’ in just two days at the former ‘Vogue’ Studios in Paris, and mixed/mastered by the renowned Philippe Tessier Du Cros & Raphael Jonin.
