Hathor Video for Ar Sorserez Houarned


.

You knew the video already, and specially the painting featured, and indeed, at the beginning, I asked Yann to compose something simple that would have the correct length (loooong!) so that I could share it in my on-line Art classes. Then it became a project in itself, that took much longer, but we’re really happy how such a long piece turned out…

Enjoy + positive feedback highly welcomed!

Message in a bottle – in the search for our Booking agent – episode 1


1 Comment


As we already mentioned it recently a couple of times, our quest to find our ideal booking agent started ! Apart from a more “conventional” search, we got the idea for an advert campaign while brainstorming.

We made this short video in Greece last week, the light and the colours were amazing, and thanks to Simone’s new editing software, you can view it in full HD! The tune is a traditional one, but we absolutely love its unique “big” sound. we may record a full album version… some day 🙂

If you want to support us, you can spread the word by sharing around you !

And, as you have seen, it’s only “episode 1” – of course we have more to come !

Our stay in Portugal is going fine, meaning we got some nice contacts for potential future concerts, so we’re already preparing to come back very soon, but also practising new songs for tomorrow’s concert.

We’ll be recording very soon a version of this song with a guest. But…. it’s a surprise!

Hey het… with Lamia Bedioui


1 Comment

Lamia is originally from Tunisia, but she’s living in Greece for about 17 years, and that’s how we met. We were amazed to find so easily some connections between both our cultures, and since we were playing together for the 2nd time, some nice routine is coming up. This is a video from a song of her called “Hey Het”, it’s a traditional song from Lebanon.

How did you make this amazing video ?


1 Comment

Which video you mean ? This one, from our album‘s last song, that we called 7 Hills, based on traditional tune and lyrics, but we changed the original rhythm.

.

.

So how did we do it ? A combination of time + patience + paper + paint + cheap camera + cheap editing software !!!

As usual… any nice & warm comment will be welcome !!!
