Her passion for the music of oral traditions and her qualities as a soloist pushed her on the path of many creations that led her to perform in Europe but also in Morocco or Guyana ...

She is currently preparing the creation of Lolomis' third album as well as the release of the third opus of Zakouska (March 2019); and develops a parallel career in music pedagogy by teaching the harp at the Conservatoire Regional Radiation of Toulon.

There are several albums to his credit in the spheres of neo-traditional music with the group Zakouska and in the rock'n'roll of The Summer Rebellion, born from his meeting with David Koczij in Brussels.

These multiple encounters make him a battered accompanist and a fierce improviser who happily leaves the beaten track.

From violin and viola to Cretan lyra, Aline makes the strings sound with finesse.

Her musical career leads her to give a central place to the traditional music that she continues to nourish with a living practice and full of energy.

Zakouska « La Criée /The Clamourous Fish-Market »
Zakouska is a french quartet that plays music from the Mediterranean.
Their third album calls forth images of the sea, its waves and undercurrents, of sadness and
loneliness on the water, and the joy and bustle of the market in port.
The four musicians offer a fresh look at old traditions, artfully combining French and Greek
songs, Balkan devilry and flights of Turkish fancy.
Each piece stirs up the atmosphere of the fish-markets of Marseille, Athens and Istanbul that
take centre stage in this creative and generous musical journey.
