Looking For The Lost Light
AL MAARI is a bold indie cocktail of oriental rhythms and electro-pop tunes. A way for this son of a Syrian immigrant to go back to his roots in search of a brand new warm, modern sound.
It’s something like Alt-J meets Bombino combined with Elliott Smith’s sensitive touch — Al Maari invites us to follow him down a path lovingly drawn into the hot desert sand… Imagine David Bowie and Jimmy Page carrying Hot Chip’s synths under their arms, off on a desert jaunt to go have tea with Touaregs, and you’ll get the idea.
The warmth of Al Maari’s music will enchant and transport you; on stage, it’s a call for a spiritual and physical quest, led by melodies both complex and smooth, with poetic lyrics echoing in your soul like deep breaths of fresh air.
