ABOUT THE ALBUM

Revealed during his performance in the studio for Le Monde est un Village (2003 compilation RTBF/Virgin), Quentin Dujardin seduces through his rich palette of sounds and the sensuality of his compositions for the guitar. Is fingers – soaked in classical, jazz, flamenco and Arabic music – sound a new horizon in the universe of the instrument.

Here he presents his meeting with the Moroccan singer and violinist Jalal El Allouli, and also continues his long collaborate with multi-instrumentalist Damien Libert.

Undoubtedly, the top album of the Belgian guitarist.
