TE’ or 手 means "hand" in Japanese. 5 diatonic accordions, 5 masters.
Unchallenged masters of the instrument, 10 dancing hands on the keyboards, a blend of musical techniques, featuring different cultures, 5 decades of supporting each other, lives that are told.
These musicians are like the fingers of a hand, different, complementary, accomplices, all essential.
These ten hands, for about the same duration as a CD, take you to all the corners of Europe with harmony and complicity, anger and tenderness, both past and present, but always with great musicality.
The name "Samurai" for this group is no accident, nor the 'TE' or 手 as the title of the album.
It’s a glimpse of ancestral Japan, of our collective imagination.
