THE WATER WHEELA Tribute to Hamza El Din
This fourth record is a tribute to the nubian singer & oudist Hamza El Din. Resolutely psychedelic, it nevertheless has all Bachar's hallmarks: a heavy piano touch, a precise orchestration and a delicate voice.
released 28 may 2018
"A breathtaking global fusion of classical modes, electronica, jazz, trance, dub, world music (...), drawing on influences from Oum Khartoum to Pink Floyd and mixing traditional Lebanese folk tunes and an extraordinary setting of the liturgical ‘Kyrie Eleison’ with his own dazzlingly original compositions."

WHO'S GONNA GET THE BALL FROM BEHIND...
A completely unclassifiable second album. A treaty of freedom. A plasticization of genres. In short, a record as eclectic and impossible to cage as its author, pianist, percussionist and singer.
released 4 march 2013
With Oil Slick, it is as a singer-composer that Bachar (percussions, piano, synths) takes stock – on the social, political and passionate level – of the world as it is today.
