Mzaza - Ghosts

Mzaza - Ghosts
A mix of originals and reworked traditional pieces, heavily influenced by vocalist Pauline Maudy’s French/Sephardic background and percussionist Jordan Stamos' Greek/Turkish heritage, Ghosts perfectly illustrates Mzaza’s signature style: re-imagining the old to create the new. Skilfully creating their own voice, with much of the original material in French or English, and inspired by Balkan music, Ghosts delves into stories of Mzaza’s ancestors, and their migratory pasts.

From vivacious lyricist and vocalist, Pauline, came the journey of Jewish Sephardic ancestors fleeing the bloody 15th century Spanish Inquisition for Morocco; and more recently escape from hostility during the Palestine-Israel conflict which saw her family begin again in France before finally settling, decades later, in Australia. From percussionist Jordan’s storybook, heartbreaking tales of social cleansing and population exchange in Turkey, deserted homes and businesses, further persecution – this time by Stalin - in the safe harbour thought to have been found in Greece, an incredible twist of fate and eventual safety on Australian shores. From these two intricate and personal histories sprung the new life of songs buoyed by Maudy’s French, Ladino and English vocals.
