on 19th June, at Taj Deccan. The one-day event will feature several music programs, starting from 5pm till 10:30pm.
Sam Smala, a band from France which creates a fusion between jazz, gypsy jazz and world music, will perform at 8pm. The members of this 5-piece band are Samuel Strouk on the guitar, Quentin Braine on the drums, Guillaume Marin on the bass, Mathias Levy on the violin & guitar, and Serena Fisseau with the vocals.
"Smala" is a word originating in North Africa, and means "Family". The band members played together for 10 years before "Sam Smala" was actually created.
