3MA - Ballaké Sissoko, Driss El Maloumi, Rajery – Anarouz - 2017

Since their debut album in 2008, 3MA musicians have gone through many individual experiences expanding their knowledge.

They meet regularly to give 3MA concerts around the world and over the years, new ideas have emerged, which have then been refined, resulting in new compositions or reworking existing ideas.

A decade after the beginning of his adventure, it was time to take stock and return to the recording studio. This new album is witness to his wonderful connection and mature experience. The percussionist Khalid Kouhen joins two tracks to add delicate pulses with his Pakistani percussions and Indian tables, and in two other tracks we can even listen to Rajery, Driss and Ballaké singing.

But for the rest of the record, string instruments reign and weave their magic alone. Each piece is the result of a unique chemistry in which individual parts are difficult to define. The sounds of kora, oud and valiha do not attempt to stand out from each other, but instead develop a common language. While we never lose sight of the rich traditions that Ballaké Sissoko, Driss El Maloumi and Rajery represent, we listen above all to a shared message of 3MA, a message that manifests itself against the violence of our world, with its soft and invigorating harmonies, vital energy and universal poetry.
