Magic MALIK:

 

Malik Mezzadri is a jazz Flautist born in 1969. He grew up in Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe where he started recorder (fipple flute) and transverse flute at the age of 6. When he was 13 he learnt flute with Marc Rovelas who made him discover Bach, Xenakis, Ravel and Stockhausen.

He left Guadeloupe at 17 and graduated from the Marseille conservatoire being the first flutist, he discovered jazz at that time.

As soon as he left the conservatoire, he got the occasion of playing in reggae band Human Spirit during 10 years.

Malik Mezzadri made multiple collaboration as a flutist with artists such as Lio, Teri Moise, Laurent Garnier, Saint Germain, Dj Gilb’R, FFF.

In 1992 he founded his first Magic Malik Orchestra which recorded its first demo released in 1997 under the name HWI Project via Salam Aleikum.

Then he met Julien Laurau who tours with his own band: the Groove Gang. In 1998 he takes part to the album City Boom Boom and joined the Groove Gang. In 1999 Malik goes on tour with the Groove Gang during several months across South America and Africa.

In 2000 he decides to start an album on his name and gather a Magic Malik Orchestra. It leaded to the recording of the album 69 96 via Label Bleu.

In 2003 Malik released a double album titled 00-237 XP-1. The first disc presents a sample of his repertoire in the tradition of the previous album but more jazz and more complex. On the second volume, XP-1, Malik reveals its first attempts to construct a personal language, hidden behind the code name XP. Steve Coleman, interested in the musical approach of Malik, even appeared on a track from the album before inviting Malik to join him on the album Five Elements (Blue Note).

With the Magic Malik Orchestra he released in 2004 an album titled 13 XP Song’s Book : 13 songs, some are known and some are not from his personal point of view.

Malik wrote and recorded with many musicians of the new generation, such as: -M-, Bumcello, Camille, Pierrick Pedron, Aka Moon, Booster. Recently he also collaborated with Hocus Pocus, Air and Oumou Sangaré.

In 2008 he released a new album titled Saoule in quintet and in 2010 he records for the first time in quartet the album titled Short Cuts via the label Bee Jazz.

What differentiates Malik from others, besides his unique know how, is his exuberant stage game and the fact that he uses various shouts and hummings flute called growl. Therefore he can be considered as an indirect heir of Roland Kirk.

In may 2012, he gets alongside musician and composer Gilbert Noubou a one year residency in the Medicis Villa in Rome.
