Naïssam Jalal

A vertiginous flutist and prolific composer, Naïssam Jalal comes from a fertile background in music fuelled by passion and curiosity. Born in a Parisian suburb of Syrian parents, she assimilated and transcended the essence of European and Arab classical music, the art of jazz improvisation, the urgency of hip-hop, the euphoria of funk and the vitality of traditions from Africa, with a keen sense of synthesis and a hyper- sensitive touch. This fine trajectory has been marked by a number of excellent CD releases and prestigious awards such as the Coup de cœur from the Académie Charles Cros (2017) and the Victoires du Jazz (2019). Looking ahead, 2021 will be marked by the tenth anniversary of her ensemble Rhythms of Resistance and the release of a much - awaited double album Un Autre Monde (Another world) some of which was recorded live with the Orchestre National de Bretagne, as well as the Rituels de Guérisons (Rituals of healing), a project with her new quartet. Once again, Naïssam Jalal invites us to enter her personal and vibrant musical universe which, both in substance and in form, gives full meaning to the word Freedom.
