The Ensemble Tessala is a group that revisits the main pages of some traditional and classical repertoires. It draws its inspiration from the traditional Arab-Andalusian melodies, as well as Jewish melodies from the medieval and baroque periods, even re-appropriating the tunes of Quebec folklore.

The main objective of the Ensemble Tessala is therefore to explore certain artistic aspects rooted in tradition and present them to the public in a contemporary form while respecting traditional aesthetics.

The Ensemble Tessala is composed of three master instruments: the classical guitar, played by Samuel Bonnet, the oriental percussion (Riqq & Bendir) by Nathaniel Huard and the Oud, by Khalil Moqadem.
