Marie Séférian is the daughter of a chanson singer and a chamber musician. This musical environment was as important to her as the Lebanese roots of her French ancestors. During her study at the jazz institute Berlin she met her band members Nicolai Thärichen (p), Tim Kleinsorge (b) and Javier Reyes (dr). Together they form a quartet mixing French chanson, jazz and sometimes a little bit of the orient.
The quartet mostly plays Marie Séférian's compositions. Almost all of her texts are sung in French or in syllables. Her music tells tales of little girls in castles, a grandfather's wisdom and a melancholious morning... The three musicians emphasize these different emotions with their colorful and playful ideas.
