    Strange Meeting
Trained at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and active on the Belgian and French scene for several years, the guitarist Julien Marga is indeed to be placed in the "promising new blood" category.
"Hypnosis", the latest album of his quartet released in October 2017, is a record of great coherence, focusing on the sound of the band and highlighting a keen sense of melody. Julien Marga plays a subtle, elegant jazz, tinged with Afro-American and Malagasy influences.
A blend of taste and aesthetics that is reminiscent of some illustrious guitar leaders such as John Scofield, Gilad Hekselman or Bill Frisell. In the background of each composition, the influence of the ECM label and its sense of space.
“The gang of four flees the ostentatious blusters and sterile virtuosity. This album exudes charm and delicacy”
Christian Larrède - Musique et Culture
“The new generation of jazz is coming”
Romain Decoret - Guitarist Acoustic
“A sense of breathing and space rare to find. As a guitarist, Julien Marga is the kind of musician to whom any notion of show off is foreign”
Jean-François Mondot - Jazz Magazine
"An elaborated music, interpreted with emotion, that leaves spaces for each to express themselves"
Thierry Giard - Culture Jazz
