Ultime Prière - Oriental Sacred Songs  (Trio) - Videos

Ultime Prière ("Ultimate Prayer") evokes the Orient's mystic memory, with deep original compositions on texts by Sufi poets of the 9th and 12th century (Ibn Arabi, Hallaj, Ibn Al Faridh). These masters of mysticism were renowned for their open-mindedness. With sublime voices, beautiful melodies and enchanting rhythms, the musicians invite you to a spiritual journey of mind and soul, promoting cross-cultural dialogue and exchange - a prayer for the victims of war and barbarism, a ray of hope for a world in peace!

Promoting peace and cultural dialogue



Exil mon amour - Music, Theatre, Calligraphy  (5tet)

Here, Fawzy presents a collection of original songs, fruit of his life in exile, between Orient and Occident. French actress Catherine Javaloyès recites texts by famous Arabic and Western authors on this theme. Iraqi calligrapher Hassan Massoudy's sensual movements, projected on a big screen, reflect words and music. Oriental melodies melt with visual and dramatic arts to a vivid and affecting picture of life in exile.

Shows for Kids and Families


Entre deux roseaux, l'enfant - Music show for small and big ears (Solo) - Age: 2-3 to 102 yrs. - Video teaser

Via his alter ego Nassim, Fawzy takes us back to his childhood in Iraq. Nassim plays in the marshes of Basra and imagines himself a bird travelling around the world and bringing along songs from different corners of the globe. With his oud, Fawzy takes the audience on a dreamy journey, singing nursery rhymes and children’s songs in Arabic, French, and English. Beautiful animated calligraphies and drawings by Hassan Massoudy are dancing on a screen round like the sun. Combining musical, theatrical and visual elements, this new show full of finesse and poetry enchants toddlers, kids and grown-ups accompanying them.

Noces-Bayna - French traditional songs with an Arabic reflection (4tet) - Age: 6 to 106 yrs.

- optional children's choir - Video teaser

A dialogue between French traditional songs and Fawzy's original compositions, as mirror reflections, has resulted in unique pieces of music, situated somewhere between the French coast and the Iraqi desert. Oud, violin and bagpipes answer each other, supported by challenging Middle Eastern rhythms. The songs are sung in French and Arabic, but also in regional dialects like Occitan, Basque, Alsatian and Breton. Noces-Bayna is a unifying, cross-cultural project, offering a locally trained children's choir to participate in a professional music show!
