It has been 10 years since the first volume of Labesse came out in 2006. At that time, it was a very new sound with compositions that were inspired by traditional instruments, such as the Nay, oriental flutes, the Oud, the Guembri, ‘crotales’, the Bendir, etc. The list of tracks was also first-class, including collaborations with U-Cef and Amina, Mei Tei Shô and Ganoub, Gwana Njoum Exp, Magic Malik, Hightone, Smadj, amongst others.
