See a videoclip from the album:

Chaque jour nouveau

Inside, a beating heart, outside, the call of the horizon.
Inside, an endless melody, outside, the music of the wind.
Inside, the world’s lullaby, outside, the horizon of possibilities.

Five years after La Silencieuse (Buda Musique 2017), Meïkhâneh affirms more the Persian, Mongolian and European influences of its musical language, at the crossroads of World Music and an imaginary Folklore. The trio explores interiority and exteriority, the cocoon and the vast world, what is felt and what is said. A call to space, to travel, to nature… This new album offers 13 songs that are both luminous and intimate, earthy and vibrant. Sung in Mongolian, Persian, Portuguese, Greek, French and imaginary language, Chants du dedans, Chants du dehors (Songs from Inside, Songs from Outside) delivers limpid, deep melodies, dancing rhythms, in a setting of plucked and bowed strings, between earth and sky.
