To my people: "Art possesses more power than arms."
Kaïss was born and raised in an old district of Baghdad that typifies a blend of Arab, Kurdish and Persian influences enhanced by the traces of Asian and Indian civilizations under the effects of the silk trade route. Now living in Paris, he has drawn from the Western music that surrounds him and injected into his own compositions an air of jazz and flamenco, producing his unique eclectic sound of East meets West.
Kaïss is currently seeking production for the next full length release, and an agency for Europe and global distribution of their current release "Bagdad Paris Leïla."
