INSULA is a French band formed by three musicians, with Maher Beauroy, Martinican pianist, Redha Benabdallah French-Algerian oudist and Adriano Tenorio Brazilian percussionist, who play Caribbean jazz with Arabic-Andalusian rhythms.
They compose music with original sounds mixing the Arabian Lute and the piano, combining traditional and modern music. The group offers a bold music, rich in sensitivity and color, building a bridge between tradition and modernity in the footsteps of the great thinker and militant Frantz Fanon, prominent figure in Martinique and in Algeria.
About the “Emirati-French Cultural Dialogue”
The Year of the “Emirati-French Cultural Dialogue” celebrates the historical ties of friendship and cooperation between France and the United Arab Emirates, established upon the foundation of the Federation in 1971 and growing stronger ever since.
