    About the artists

    Amine and Hamza M'raihi are two Tunisian musician brothers, playing respectively theoud and the qanun, the two major instruments of the classical Arabic music.

    Since a very young age, the brothers were raised with classical Arab music which allowed them to develop an extensive mastery of their instruments. They have since evolved into diverse musical traditions including classical western music, jazz, flamenco, Indian, Persian music and many others. Amine and Hamza are leaders of a new voice into the Arabic music scenery; anchored in the classical Arabic tradition but opened on the diverse musical styles. They are the image of a new generation, proud of their multiple identities but open and tolerant toward other cultures.

    Amine and Hamza have performed in many prestigious scenes all over the world, including the Arab World Institude in Paristhe BBC, the Medina Theatre in Beirut, and the Cairo Operahouse. They have recorded and published seven albums featuring musicians from all over the world and from different musical traditions.

    Their latest project, The Band Beyond Borders, dives even deeper in modern harmonies, hypnotic grooves and profound feeling, and features French-Indian tabla player Prabhu Edouard and Swiss-Indian violinist Baiju Bhattas well as Swiss saxophonist Valentin Conus and Swedish percussionist Fredrik.
