ABOUT THE ALBUM
Revealed during his performance in the studio for Le Monde est un Village (2003 compilation RTBF/Virgin), Quentin Dujardin seduces through his rich palette of sounds and the sensuality of his compositions for the guitar. Is fingers – soaked in classical, jazz, flamenco and Arabic music – sound a new horizon in the universe of the instrument.
Here he presents his meeting with the Moroccan singer and violinist Jalal El Allouli, and also continues his long collaborate with multi-instrumentalist Damien Libert.
Undoubtedly, the top album of the Belgian guitarist.

“Quentin Dujardin: the quiet talent.” (Accroches magazine)

inner stirrings.” (La Revue Générale
