He is at home all over the world, as is his music. A childhood jazz fan, the singer and oud-player Dhafer Youssef was influenced just as much by Scandinavian musicians’ concepts of sound as by the sound worlds of India. Although he left his home in Teboulba very early on in order to find artistic fulfilment in Vienna, Barcelona, Berlin, New York, Dakar and Paris, his music and singing also contains echoes of the past. And this has more influence than ever: in his latest programme he and his fellow musicians reconcile East and West in way that is both beautiful and a little crazy – as the title says: “Beauty and Odd”.
