When a maestro of flamenco guitar meets a chaâbi star of Algerian mandola, the musical dialogue that takes place forms a new Arabo-Andalusian bridge to reach the peaks of virtuosity.

Recognized by the challenging flamenco puro world and by the international world music, musician Juan Carmona loves to walk his duende on exclusive sound territories.

Artistic director of the El Gusto project and fellow traveler of Gnawa Diffusion and Karim Ziad, the mandolist Ptit Moh creates a common language of an infinite richness in his conversation with Juan Carmona.

The two outstanding instrumentalists share the will to browse and add diverse world music and jazz aesthetics to their performance…without denying their roots and their attachment to traditional music.

A chaâbi flamenco of dazzling musicality and feeling, under the alert fingers of two exceptional Mediterranean artists.
