Guitarist Kevin Seddiki of French, Algerian and Italian descent, has a talent that allows him to flit between world, jazz and classical, and to be perfectly at home in each. At ease on stage or in studio with artists such as Al di Meola, Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Argentinian Bandoneonist Dino Saluzzi, or the Lebanese singer Yasmine Hamdan, this composer and arranger has an instinctive relationship to stringed instruments. He is also particularly fond of percussive instruments like the zarb. In 2009, he wins the prestigious European Guitar Award and on May 2012 he releases his debut album il Sentiero for the German label Wildner Records. One year later, he joins forces with Bijan Chemirani, and they release Imaginarium for Harmonia Mundi/World Village. Seddiki currently gives concerts as a soloist and as a duo with Bijan Chemirani or with the Argentinian singer Sandra Rumolino.
“It’s not every day that one meets a guitarist and composer as Kevin Seddiki. His eclecticism and virtuosity led him to collaborations with musicians, such as Al di Meola, Dino Saluzzi, Bijan Chemirani. His first album under his name leads us into a world on the borders of classical, jazz and world music.”
“A musician of great sensitivity and an album that I encourage you to discover”
