Ibrahim Maalouf Live in the Arena of Nîmes, in 4K

Ibrahim Maalouf Live in the Arena of Nîmes, in 4K

Born in Beirut in 1980, Ibrahim Maalouf is rewarded in France with 4 “Victoires de la Musique”, a “César” and a “Prix Lumières” for best film music in 2016. In Germany, he received an “Echo Jazz”.
His work of mixing genres has been recognized around the world for more than 10 years.
Filling the Volkswagen Arena in Istanbul, doing sold-out concerts at the Lincon Jazz Center in New York, and traveling through more than 40 countries around the world in the last 10 years, he became the first jazzman in history to fill the largest concert hall in France, at Bercy, selling out more than 8 months in advance.
Qualified as a “virtuoso” by the New York Times, he performed in an exceptional concert in collaboration with The New Levant Initiative, at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, for the world premiere of his album “Levantine Symphony No.1”.

In September 2020, Ibrahim Maalouf exclusively offers the music from his new album during an exceptional concert behind the closed doors of the Arena of Nîmes. He returns to the elementary form of the duo, with the guitarist who has accompanied him for over 10 years, François Delporte. The exercise is perilous. No rhythm section, no orchestra, no electronic effects: just the elementary conversation of two melodic lines for an intimate concert in an immense space.

A few guests will join the duo…

This performance is a rendezvous with history: the Arenas of Nîmes, built at the end of the 1st century AD, are one of the best preserved Roman constructions in the world. To walk in these arenas is to walk in 1900 years of history, to breathe the air of another civilization.
