Project description

Modes, & rhythms inspired by Arabic, African & Indian traditions, combined with a modern jazz approach that draws from Funk, Dub, Electronica, and many more such genres, and you get the unique sound of Sinouj. The union of the alto sax & the oriental violin, along with abstract contemporary harmonies and experimental electronic textures from the keyboard, and an unstoppable momentum of its African rhythm section give Sinouj’s music it’s unmistakable seal

SINOUJ
Sinouj is an Afro-Mediterranean band (Spain-Tunisia-Nigeria-Italy) that mixes musical traditions from the Maghreb and the Middle East with contemporary Jazz, Funk, and African Music. Sinouj integrates its Arabic rhythms and modes into a modern vision of Jazz and Funk with a light electronic flavor. The group's sound is marked by its unique combination of the Saxophone and the Oriental Violin with a powerful African rhythm section as well as with harmonic and electronic touches provided by the keyboards. The universality of Sinouj’s music has allowed the band to play in many jazz & world music festivals in countries like Tunisia, Cuba, Spain, France, Algeria and Belgium. Sinouj published its second CD, Were (2012), after Live at Play (2009), a CD & DVD with the collaboration of the flamenco master el Guadiana. Musicians such as Jorge Pardo, Javier Paxariño, Fabrizio Cassol, and Sylvain Cathalà have also played with Sinouj. For this new project, Sinouj will present a new repertoire with an electronic touch by Towards Green, plus the collaboration of great musicians like Adedeji Adetayo (Nigeria) Ariel Bringuez (Cuba) Nantha Kumar or Javier Paxariño.

CROWDFUNDING
We need your help with funding to cover the following expenses:
renting the studio for three days, editing, mixing & mastering of the album and
printing 1000 copies for you to be the first ones to have the CD!

Recording dates are planned in March. Editing, mixing and mastering will take place during the months of April & May. If everything goes smoothly, with your help we’ll have the digital album at the end of May, and the hard copies in June.

Through this crowd funding, sponsors and donors will have access to our music before anyone else and for a reduced price. In addition, we’ll have more freedom to work our music in the studio (recording, editing & mixing). The budget we’re asking for is 4500 €. This a minimum/ bottom line to pay the studio, the mixing & mastering of the album, the expenses for our violin player, Larbi Sassi, who’s coming from Tunisia to Madrid, and to pay our collaborators. The more we can achieve, the more we can spend on the recording, and that time will definitely help us to work on a new material that’s going to surprise you!
