Press Release

Houeida Hedfi presents her debut album, ‘Fleuves de l’Âme’, via Phantasy Sound. Merging traditional Tunisian folk music with contemporary sound design, this community collaboration was produced alongside Olof Dreijer of The Knife. Originally a percussionist, Hedfi first met Dreijer when he visited Tunisia and produced her contribution to a 2011 compilation of female Tunisian artists. This kindled a nine-year collaboration which culminates in ‘Fleuves de l’Âme’, an elegant marriage of traditional folk music and contemporary sound design drawing references from Hedfi’s drumming expertise and the textures of Tunisian music alongside a startlingly broad array of global genres. Each track is named for a different river, referencing both the safety found in the sound of water and the sinuous drama of each composition, which often starts peacefully, before evolving to encompass drama and tension, conflict and resolution.
