Upon his participation in 2015 in the creation of the Thabet brothers, “Nous sommes pareils à ces crapauds”, Nidhal Yahyaoui discovers Greek music Rebetiko, which dates from the 1920's.
For him, it was both a surprise and a revelation to discover all the similarities between this music coming from the other end of the Mediterranean and the Tunisian Malouf, during the same era. At that time, Nidhal Yahyaoui developed the desire to blend these two artistitically.
Therefore, in collaboration with Greek musicians, from the repertoire of Rébetiko music and in dialogue with Tunisian music of the same time, Yahyaoui is weaving new sounds and melodies : Mediterranean (musical) languages mixing in rare harmony.
