Macha Gharibian’s jazz universe blossoms at the crossroads of three cultures: the Armenia of her ancestors, the Paris of her heart and her adopted New York. Pianist, singer, author, composer, arranger and producer of her own albums, she offers with Joy Ascension an ambitious third opus. The revelation of the 2020 Victoires du Jazz ‘sculpts impressionist sound worlds’, accompanied by drummer Dré Pallemaerts and double bass player Chris Jennings. Joy Ascension offers a real journey of contrasts and subtle openings. Between jazz, soul and blues, between Paul Simon and traditional Armenian singing, Macha Gharibian combines her influences with a rare consistency. Sometimes gentle, sometimes volcanic, her voice illuminates the hypnotic arrangements of a generous, poetic and sensual album. A unique live experience to be found at Les Gémeaux on the Sceaux What stage.
