Music - 2016
The saxophone player and composer Toufic Farroukh has chosen jazz as his favourite idiom - a jazz with the colours of the Orient, to reflect his career as an artist with his roots in two cultures, and one who is open to all the different forms of artistic expression in contemporary society, particularly dance, theatre and the cinema.
A saxophonist since an early age, Toufic studied music at the Ecole Normale Supérieur de Paris, and today he collaborates regularly as a composer with the department of modern dance at the Paris Conservatory (CRR).
Toufic Farroukh has also composed the music for several films and documentaries about his homeland, and has appeared as saxophonist on several albums of well -known artists. (Fayrouz). For his own albums, he leaves all theoretical dogma aside, assuming instead the various influences at work in his life, and from there going on to create in a strikingly tranquil manner his own utterly authentic universe.
