Line up

  • Jawhar Basti (Vocal/Guitarist)


Jawhar has created his own signature style of world-folk music that one could probably describe as midway between arab chaâbi and Nick Drake’s dreamy folk lullabies. After « When Rainbows call, My Rainbows fly », hailed by the press as a « mindblowing debut album by a song-writing prodigy » (Les Inrockuptibles, FR), the Tunisian singer-songwriter re-explores his roots and his mothertongue to let them sing once again.
