TERRA DEL CEL

With Beatritz Lalanne & Anass HabibBeatritz Lalanne, Concert

Beatritz Lalanne

At the beginning, “Terra Maïre” (:”Mother Earth”) is a unique duo of a cappella singers. Two surprising voices, emanating from the same source – those of Marie-Ange and Beatritz, mother and daughter – with a common heredity and a common repertoire, rooted in the South of France, in the regions of Rouergue (Aveyron)​, the Basque Country and the Bearn.  It was back in 1996 that Beatritz and Marie-Ange decided to embark on a pilgrimage back to their roots.  Though mother and daughter, they have very separate personalities and artistic backgrounds. This diversity gave them the energy and ability to breathe life back into the secular songs of the land of their ancestors.

These songs – prayers, laments, psalms – “chevrotés” or “sung in a quavering voice” by men and women who have gone before them and most of whom have disappeared, make up a unique heritage, a timeless tradition in danger of extinction.

In the intertwined voices of “Terra-Maïre”  their arises a world of essential emotions, that tread the fine line between the sacred and sorcery. These are wild or medieval and sacred melodies in Occitan, language of troubadours and Cathars.  more

Anass Habib

Anass gave many concerts in Morocco, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, France, the Netherlands, Poland, South Africa and Tunesia. In Morocco he gave concerts in most of the bigger cities. Just to name a few: Ifran, Meknes, Mirleft, Rabat, Tifelt, Tanger and, of course, Fez, which always remained an important centre of activities for Anass. His voice is considered as one of the most beautiful Arabic voices, with his ability of going from the deep and warm low tones in the bariton range (Anass’ primary range) all the way to the high tenor voice to express emotions and devotion. His repertories go through a lot of countries and civilizations. From the great Lebanese diva Fairouz to the Egyptian Oum Kalthoum, from the Syrian Sabah Fakhri to the Lebanese Marcel Khalife, from soufi poems to maronite (old christian) melodies and medieval sephardic andalusian songs… Anass sings mainly in the many Arabic dialects, in Syriac (aramaic), in old Greek, and in French, Spanish and English. more
