After 17 years of touring and seven albums, Hadouk goes to a quartet - Loy Ehrlich's Hajouj and Didier Malherbe's doudouk are still the heart of the sound but even with one more musician the sound is more acoustic and natural.
Loy Ehrlich leaves the keyboards to play gumbass (a hybrid between moroccan gumbri and bass guitar). Eric Löhrer (acoustic guitar, lapsteel, cavaquinho, banjo) with his subtle style, brings a new harmonic universe to the quartet. Didier Malherbe plays a different kind of doudouk and brings amazing flutes such as: Chinese pa-ou chinois, Indian bansouri and Moldavian pipe. Jean Luc Di Fraya, drummer, plays an original percussion set along with his unique vocals.
"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
