Sophia Charaï in concert

Tuesday, May 10th 2011

The singer from Morocco, Sophia Charaï, is a musician who was raised among old jazz recordings, Egyptian film soundtracks, and French radio broadcasts.  These experiences left their mark and influenced Charaï to a certain extent when she began to compose songs and release her own albums.  The pieces of music that she creates are a universe of melody and fantasy—fresh arrangements that combine various genres and take parts of diverse components, such as Indian sounds, Brazilian beats, flamenco rhythms, the softness of the Portuguese fado, or the passion of South American music.  Charaï sings in Arabic and French, accompanied by tabla, hand clapping, and accordion. At times her vocals can be very refined and dramatic, making her music feel so vibrant.

The concert of Sophia Charaï at Teater Salihara is made possible with support from the French Cultural Center (Centre Culturel Français), Jakarta.

Price:IDR 50.000 and IDR 25.000 for student (limited seating)
