Ibrahim Maalouf honors Oum Kalthoum. Mediterranean iconic artist, Oum Kalthoum was both singer and actress - two passions conducted with such flamboyance and a generous Umm Kalthoum was nicknamed "Astre Orient". While this Egyptian diva no longer with us in 1975, it continues to make its mark in many collective unconscious. And, throughout the Arab world.
Fascinated by this singer from an early age, Ibrahim Maalouf has decided to take one of his best songs: "Alf Leila wa Leila" (Thousand and One Nights). Work that led to the album Kalthoum. Multiforme trumpeter offers here a tinted jazz of the East, which sails between Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. To commemorate the anniversary of the death of Oum Kalthoum, Ibrahim Maalouf has surrounded himself with Frank Woeste (piano), Mark Turner (saxophone) Scott Colley (bass) and Clarence Penn (drums). He therefore found the same team that had all the charm of Wind, itself an album in tribute to Miles Davis.
