Peemaï

ETHNIC GROOVE

Peemaï’s inspiration comes from Asia. From Laos to Indonesia but also from urban culture of its 4 artists. A “no border” music with hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodies, mixed with joyful reinvented traditional songs. A unique and generous musical set, shared with jovial complicity and communicative energy, carried by powerful grooves and improvisations, both sensitive and virtuoso.

Peemaï was born in 2016 at the National Theater of Sète. Then, they traveled South East Asia for their first tour, beginning in Vientiane Jazz Festival in Laos. Today, with more than fifty concerts in France and abroad, Peemaï is constantly reinventing. The international artistic collaboration with the Indonesian Gayam 16 collective, about Gamelan, created the repertoire Gaga Gundul. Peemaï’s music offers a joyful musical journey, spreading smiles and happiness.

Press review

TELERAMA – JANUARY 2018
” […] the inventive groove constantly takes us by surprise, whether it’s with a soaring brassy drop, gnawa karkabous or raging trip-hop rap. “
Anne Berthod

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. “
Alex Dutilh
