Playing “Tantrik” from Saloua on TomorrowJazz Radio
On his new release, Truffaz continues to prove that he is one of the most inventive fusion artists recording today. Saloua goes from world music (with vocals by Tunisian singer Mounir Troudi) to undiluted rock (and did I hear some reggae too?). On my initial listen, some of the tracks reminded me of The Police. However, to say that Truffaz emulates anyone would be false. His music is unique and always fascinating.
Dave Howell at Pop Matters has a good review of this CD. Check it out!
