Collaborations between the east and west such as Zakir and McLaughlin, Ravi Shankar and Yehudi Menuhin, have resulted in some of the finest music over the decades. Mathias Duplessy from France started working with the Sufi Indian singer Mir Mukhtiyar Ali six years ago and soon realized they had a common language in music. They evolved a style of their own, which was inspired by Rajasthani folk, flamenco, blues, reggae, African, Japanese and Mongolian music. In 2011, they recorded an album in Paris called ''Jeena Jeena'' and are performing since with the great Bastien Charlery, accordion player from the Bulgarian gipsy style. The famous sarangi player Sabir Khan who also worked with them on film music score will join the stage for an exceptional evening!
