HADOUK TRIO from France
World Jazz Concert


HADOUK is the HAjouj played by Loy and the DouDOUK played by Didier.

Didier Malherne: Doudouk, soprano saxophone, Khen, flute
Loy Elrich: Hajouj, Gumbass, Keyboards, Kora
Steve Shehan: Percussionm djembe, Hang

After the succes of “Utopies” and “Baldamore” (50000 albums sold) and having been awarded the prestigious prize “Victoires de la Musique” in 2008, Hadouk Trio is back with a new album,“Air Hadouk”, taking us a step further towards and into an ethereal world.

The Ken, the Laotian mouth organ is wrapped in electrical energy; the Hang, a mix between a steel drum and a gamelan, enters into the world of chromaticism; the Doudouk steps into the shoes of Jazz; the Hajouj, a bass originally from the desert made from camel’s skin becomes a piccolo, heightening the tone: the appearance of the bahu flute, with its free Chinese reed, creates a wave of mouvement.

Aiming at the azure, Hadouk purifies the lines, becoming lighter and rising up into the atmosphere. Swings and loops, high voltage rythms and gliding harmonies, our 3 co-pilots opt for free style, but they also know to help you land gently with no turbulence. Enjoy your flight!
