When Sting re-opened the Bataclan in Paris in 2016, he could only think of one French musician with whom he wanted to share the stage that evening: Ibrahim Maalouf. Understandable, because the French-Lebanese jazz trumpet player stands for passion, pleasure, hope and … diversity. The fourth (!) valve of his trumpet has allowed him to introduce Arabic music influences into his virtuoso jazz play for years, while his latest record S3NS is full of Latin American rhythms. “My fans go on a journey with me”, Maalouf once said in De Volkskrant, and in fact that is completely true. For now, also not an exaggeration: “If I make an album that is similar to a previous one, you can tell me to stop playing”. S3NS is again so different and daring that you will probably want to tell him on 10 July that he simply has to keep playing!
