Fawzy Al-Aiedy is a captivating and colourful personality who loves „these border experiences, these balancing acts where we proceed step by step." The Iraqi musician is a true equilibrist, a traveller always seeking the perfect balance between Orient and Occident, modernity and tradition.
Created on the occasion of festival Strasbourg-Méditerranée, Fawzy and his musicians have composed a repertoire with songs about his life in exile.
The Oriental melodies melt with the sensual movements of the great Iraqi calligrapher Hassan Massoudy.
Reciting French texts, the enchanting voice of actress Catherine JAVALOYES draws a scenario of exile.
EXIL MON AMOUR, carried by the familiar rhythms of percussionnist Adel SHAMS EL DIN and the virtuosic solos of violinist Jasser HAJ YOUSSEF is a journey into the heart of modern exile.
