The exercise is not trivial, and even less easy. He had the talent and the patter of Ibrahim Maalouf to get to play them in unison a whole room of musicians enthusiasts! For the time being, the franco-lebanese trumpeter is the only one to do this kind of improvisation giant. To put the participants in the bath, it starts with a set of exercises quite amazing. To ask, if it is not in a spectacle of a behaviorist as this is surprising. For example, he asks the audience to sing a note, each his own, and this cacophony initial is going to be born a joint note, the fa. The exercise begins with the instruments: this time it is the bb that spring! Ibrahim Maalouf concludes the warm-up by this maxim: “we need to be listening to the other”. Then, the improvisation, strictly speaking, begins. While his musicians join him on stage, he asks everyone to play what he wants. And again, is born a rhythm common and a short melody, repeated by his group then supported by small sessions of musicians that he invites to the stage. A saxophonist meets a guitarist, a pianist, a cellist, a flutist,… Each leaving quickly its place to the other.
