ANDALUSIAN LOVE SONG
My album "Andalusian Love Song" has been officially released on January 15th. The album features a stellar lineup of 16 musicians and 9 original compositions. I'm so grateful to be able to realise this vision with the help of SENA production Funds and the Marmoucha Foundation.

The Guembri player Mehdi Nassouli is the future of Gnawa music and, along with his desire to preserve traditional Moroccan music, has managed to fuse the music he loves with Jazz, Classical and Pop. No more so than on Sahara Koyo, created in collaboration with Marmoucha Orchestra.
As well as playing the Guembri on Sahara Koyo Mehdi contributes his amazing vocal style, plays Krakebs, Taarija and Ghaita and provides compositions and arrangements along with Marmoucha’s Artistic Director Avishai Darash and arrangers Maripepa Contreras, Arin Keshishi and Oene Van Geel.
Sahara Koyo is destined to be one of those 'you need this' albums and both Marmoucha Orchestra and Mehdi Nassouli are both destined to hit stellar status because of it.
From January 2021 I've started the exciting MusicalMakers trajectory. It brought a successful studio presentation with a full set orchestra and a second phase of creating, where I'll be exploring and studying from masterpieces within the cultural canon of musicals.
