Even voorstellen - Azmari - Azalaï

Created in Brussels in 2015, Azmari is a weaving musical odyssey that expertly fuses ethiogroove, dub, psychfunk and eastern sounds.
Having released their debut EP ‘Ekera’ last year, a series of shows across Europe saw the Azmari sound develop and ten days performing in Istanbul opened the band’s ears to the Turkish sounds and rhythms from the 1960s.
Keen to get back in the studio to start work on their debut album, studiously studying Turkish and Ethiopian scales, along with learning new instruments along the way including the berimbau, the ney and bağlama, the Azmari sound transformed into a rebellious, unrelenting and mesmerising trip.
The resulting nine tracks that make up debut album ‘Samā'ī’, released 22nd January via Sdban UItra, is a deeply hypnotic experience where mesmerising rhythms and winding improvisations send the listener in to a higher state of consciousness.
The mystical and cosmological ‘Azalai’ take us on a sacred journey full of raging saxes and wig-out percussion.


Azmari are; Arthur Ancion - Drums, Basile Bourtembourg – Keyboards, Saaz and Percussion, Jojo Demeijer - Percussion, Niels D'haegeleer - Bass, Mattéo Badet – Saxophone and Kaval and Ambroos de Schepper - Saxophone and Flute.

Sdban Records is an independent record label based in Ghent, Belgium. It is home to such artists as John Ghost, De Beren Gieren, TaxiWars, Glass Museum, Steiger, Black Flower and STUFF.
