Dominique Dalcan: Last night a woman saved my life

1. Product Details

Far from being Dominique Dalcan's first collaboration, he crossed paths with Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, French singer Camille, international designer Matali Crasset, British remixers Autreche, Belgian golden globe award-winning film director Alain Berliner, and many more. For over three decades, he has established himself as a free-spirited performer on the French music scene. His blend of organic and the synthetic sounds carved him his place under the sun of French Touch' golden age, under the name Snooze. Then, tightening his focus on the "Temperance" project, he earned a Victoire in the electronic music category in 2018 (French Grammy). Already wandering through the concept of territory, building a bridge between nature and technology, the album was about "the fear of stagnation and unwillingness to seek oneself further of musicians", and the need to "keep some kind of candid soul while challenging your perceptions". The result is a body of work as varied as it's audience. Far from resting on his laurels, he then adds sound installations to his body of work. Last Night a Woman Saved My Life: a title that resonates beyond wordplay and simple reference. Women are the future of men. Facing such a chaotic world, music escapes conflict, it's gathering and bonding qualities fly high above human experience. Overcoming distances of all kind, these powerful female voices land perfectly on Dominique Dalcan's music to create a unique space of shared experience and freedom. The Algerian diva Souad Massi, the Syrian jazz girl Lynn Adib and Persian singers Parisa & Rezvan Zahedi, sometimes overcoming distances or technical difficulties by recording vocal notes on their phones, they manage to communicate their powerful inner visions. Also collaborating on the record are Dina El Wedidi, a star in her motherland of Egypt, as well as Tunisian citharist and vocalist Hend Zouari. Introducing as well the promising young Sudanese singer Sulafa Elyas, the brilliant Franco-Syrian flautist Naïssam Jalal, and one of Morocco's finest vocalists Meryem Aboulouafa. Not forgetting Dominique's compatriot Yara Lapidus and Bernadette Yammine, who cultivates Arabo-Andalusian music made in Lebanon. From western minimalism to eastern lyricism. "Neither hi-fi nor lo-fi, just contemporary", sums up it's author, aiming to challenge the traditional oriental music framework, making eleven tracks of pure solar pop music, using the hypnotic nature of instruments such as oud and qanun. This record is a soft healing process made of makeshift frontiers, subliminal cultural heritage inviting intimacy with things bigger than us. It's above all, a confluence of stellar and unique singers and musicians, all meeting in the instant of these songs.
