Biography

Born in Abidjan in 1969, Malik Mezzadri, also known as Magic Malik, has accompanied the crème de la crème of jazz and song with his flute, playing for Julien Lourau, Steve Coleman, -M-, Susheela Raman and a host of other artists. Founder of the Magic Malik Orchestra, with whom he has released a dozen albums, including the Magic Malik Fanfare XP series (three volumes released between 2017 and 2023), the musician is as much an afro-jazz musician as an avant-garde one. In 2007, he joined forces with Argentinian musicians, percussionist Minino Garay and guitarist Jaime Torres, for the Latin album Altiplano, followed by Saoule (2008), with his orchestra. In 2011, Short Cuts combines traditional, electric and electronic instruments. The quintet formula is continued on Alternate Steps (2012) and expanded on Tranz Denied (2013), with contributions from DJs and vocalists. With bassist and producer Damien Varaillon, the eclectic flautist produced the album Jazz Association (2019), extended by a stage version in 2024. Meanwhile, Ka-Frobeat (2022), inspired by Caribbean gwo-ka and Fela Kuti's Afrobeat, is released.
