Bab Assalam – Shows

About the two Shows

Zyriab’s Trip

Lyon, 2011,

The time of exile … Syria is in chaos, the two brothers Aljaramani have fled their country, they are refugees in France. The exile of the two Syrian musicians pushes the acoustic trio to a rougher and more electric sound. “With exile, we could not play the same thing again. For Khaled and Mohanad, who came to France with their cultural and musical background, tradition no longer made sense, something had broken. It was necessary to electrify all that, to westernize by what there was not in the Middle East (or very little): rock (not n’roll) and electro “, explains Raphaël.

In 2012, during a residency, they meet Philippe Barbier‘s electric guitar: the trio becomes a quartet and lays the foundations for Zyriab, a long-distance journey inspired by the stories and traditional repertoire of musicians itinerant poets.
Bab Assalam succeeds with The Trip of Zyriab to marry instruments that we do not necessarily used to hear together (oud, clarinet) and to intertwine its ancestral orientalities, saturated riffs on the electric guitar and electro experiments. “We sing exile,” says Khaled Aljaramani. We are a committed group. There is nostalgia, emotion, there is also laughter and hope in what we do.

 

We do not fly with wings

2017

It does not fly with wings is the latest creation of the trio of musicians, this time, associated with a comedian-manipulator, a videographer and the connoisseur sonoriser forever to take an interest in the ancient tales of Book of Kalila and Dimna.

A musical and visual show full of poetry that invites, between East and West, the journey through the centuries and cultures and questions the universality of myths and the essential notions of tolerance and respect for the Other.
