Born from the meeting between the Franco-Syrian singer Climène Zarkan and the guitarist Baptiste Ferrandis, Sarab - mirage in Arabic – is a musical building that combines rock, contemporary jazz and Arab traditional music which plays on borders and genres.

Robinson Khoury’s trombone links with the voice, and navigates between the Eastern and European scales, between ornamentation and a personal technique. It is with the trombone and the song that we find the horizontality of the Arab music, upset by the rich harmonic verticality of the guitar and the piano.
