Ayrad

Montréal, Québec

Ayrad explores a myriad of musical styles, shifting from Andalusian and Berber rhythms to Reggae, Raï and Latin grooves. The collective – made up of six talented multi-instrumentalists who are past masters of world music cross-pollination – is distinguished by its moving poetry, its inspiring melodies and its improvisatory skills. In addition to their own compositions, the group breathes new life into pieces drawn from the Maghrebian, Arab-Andalusian and Moroccan-Jewish repertoires. Winners of the 2012-1013 PRIX DE LA DIVERSITÉ, Ayrad have performed at the Festival Orientalys, the Week-end des Rythmes du Monde, the Festival des Traditions du Monde, and the Rendez-vous de la chanson Québecor.
