Itinéraires (Nafas)

« Itinéraires », the journey is more obvious here than anywhere else. Open up new perspectives not forgetting to feed on the past, one witnesses a rather touching reunion, more in tune with its time. Clearly, the distinctive colour of the album opens the door to a second breath, offering a broad range of almost tactile sensations. With its aerial and tribal rhythm, the languid saxophone or the hypnotic bass, we enter a world organic by its intensity. Or we quiver listening to some tracks that bring out a delicacy of their own: in the end, a very pleasant mix of genres.
