Hypokrat, new album by Maëla Raoult
Maëla offers us a soft and colorful atmosphere for this new album, in which African rhythms are mixed with jazz and oriental colors and the warm sound of the clarinet and the bass clarinet. Maëla lets us navigate and reveals five original and personal compositions as well as the arrangement of the two fabulous standards : Who walks in when I walk out and Mackie Messer.
The artist, native of Brittany, has drawn up a burning palette of southern colors and African percussions for this new album. Classical influences and harmonies with some impressionist touches, magical and modern improvisations with clarinet and bass clarinet, all orchestrated and mixed with the sound of the guitar, the piano, the bass and the percussion ; a storm of oriental colors, with jazz influences and a few hints to rock and hip hop.
