LE CRI DU CAIRE 

To the circular breathing of Peter Corser’s sax, to the « barock » strings of Karsten Hochapfel’s cello and to the musical flights of Erik Truffaz’s trumpet, responds the gripping voice of Abdullah Miniawy, a young egyptian poet and singer, craving for freedom and justice. His Sufi singing, whispered or cried out loud on top of hypnotic electronic loops, drives the audience into a mystical trance.

Spirituality and liberty shine through his music, which carries the hopes of the oppressed, facing political, social and religious repression. Halfway between rock, Sufi poetry, jazz, spoken word and oriental flourishes, Le Cri du Caire creates an intense metaphorical universe, that transcends identities and borders.

ŠIROM

The intertwining of diverse musical approaches and tools, histories of sounds and unbridled musical imagination and craftsmanship is the expansive guiding principle of the Širom trio, whose members stem from the regions of Prekmurje, Tolminsko and Kras.

More than a dozen instruments can be found in the repertoire of Iztok Koren, Samo Kutin and Ana Kravanja and at least as many given musical forms that can be perceived as an inspiration behind the character of this new ensemble. However, in their practice as well as experiencing they remain anchored in their creative process to an extent that allows them to avoid merely reflecting existing patterns. What this generates in an original, stylistically homogeneous form of expression that oscillates between a wide array of folk sounds and contemporary acoustic rock-style meditations.

The end result is grounded yet still mystical minimalism. Širom's music is contemplative, but can get harder when necessary, it is closer to being band- than chamber-like, to being street as opposed to urban in nature.

Each member of Širom also performs in a myriad of other bands and music projects, such as ŠKM banda, Hexenbrutal, Najoua, Samo Gromofon, and Horda grdih.
