Auster Loo Collective was born from the meeting of eight musicians from very different worlds. Together they begin a journey that takes them out of all stylistic shackles. The result is colorful and powerful music, where everyone is free to apply their own rules.
Iranian setar and voice mingle with classical flute and double bass, Japanese koto and shamisen meet Senegalese kora and the whole is accompanied by the melodious notes of piano and percussion from the Middle East, Africa and from South America. Charged with intensity, liveliness and contrasts, Auster Loo Collective presents a captivating sound experience that will take you on a journey through space and time.
The Auster Loo Collective was created in 2023 by percussionist and composer Simon Leleux. Raised musically in a fertile ground of inspiring encounters with musicians of various origins and ethnicities, the crossing of traditions is an integral part of his artistic approach. The project aims to allow each musician to put its rich personal journey at the service of innovative and authentic music.
