Ayrad is the fusion of singer, guitarist and composer Hamza Abouabdelmajid of Moroccan origin, established in Montreal since 2005, Annick Beauvais (oboe, backing vocals), Anit Ghosh (violin, backing vocals), Marton Maderspach (percussion, backing vocals), Sylvain Plante (drums, percussion) and Gabriel Brochu-Lajoie (bass, keyboard). These musicians from different backgrounds never hesitate to transgress musical boundaries.
Galvanized by Hamza’s exceptional voice and his singing in Arabic, the group of seasoned musicians can push their songs to the limit, infusing them with an infectious, almost magical energy.
Ayrad explores different genres such as Rock and pop, electro, Gypsy funk, desert rock, raï, Reggada, chaâbi and even Latin grooves. A truly unique mix that attracts adventurous listeners and fascinates world music lovers.
