ON/OFF

Bachar's fifth album, On/Off, was recorded in his native country, Lebanon. More precisely in the living room of the family home, a stone house, isolated in the mountains of Jaj.

In the house, the electricity cuts off twice a day (On / Off)…

THE WATER WHEEL A 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.

YA BALAD

"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

OIL SLICK

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.
