Peemaï

WORLD ETHNIC GROOVE

Peemaï draws its roots in the music of Asia, from Laos to Indonesia, as well as in the urban culture of its 4 artists. The result? A music without borders in which hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodies are mixed with joy with reinvented traditional songs. A unique and generous musical set, which they share with a jovial complicity, a communicative energy carried by a powerful groove and improvisations both sensitive and virtuoso.

Peemaï was formed in 2016 at the National Stage of Sète, before doing their first concert at the Vientiane Jazz Festival in Laos and then touring South East Asia. Today, after about fifty concerts in France and abroad, Peemaï is constantly reinventing itself, as part of a process of exchange with musicians from South East Asia and sharing. Peemaï’s music offers a joyful musical journey, where the smile of its performers spreads among their audience, in a ritual of shared happiness.

” […] the inventive groove constantly takes us by surprise, whether it’s with a soaring brassy drop, gnawa karkabous or raging trip-hop rap. “

JAZZNEWS MAG – DECEMBER 2017
” […] and their first album a real energizing candy with almost infinite flavors. “
Mathieu Durand

OPEN JAZZ/FRANCE MUSIQUE – APRIL 2017
” To experience a Peemaï concert is to make your ears travel where they don’t expect to. […] The miracle is a collective sound. Very unusual and nicely insolent. “
