Jasser Haj Youssef 4tet

Jasser Haj Youssef – violin and viola d’amore, Gaël Cadoux – piano,

“Four musicians in the crowd, under a patch of blue sky. Tonight the Jasser Haj Youssef Quartet is the symbol of openness to all music. Chants of the Orient, vibrations of the soul, body trance…Mixed music that takes baroque accents, bordering covered floral shores of jazz that is carefree and talkative. Jasser Haj Youssef’s violin has the look of a luth and throws a bridge between all cultures…”
