Samuel Strouk is a vagabond composer and instrumentalist. Classically trained, he is constantly forging new horizons and creating new musical landscapes. He has just released a new album called “Nouveaux Mondes” (New Worlds) where he blends the rigour of classical music with the wild improvisation of jazz. Strouk speaks to FRANCE 24’s Florence Villeminot about his new opus, as well his new musical streaming service, Music iN, which aims to put artists first. We also take a look at new releases by tUnE-yArDs, Xiu Xiu and First Aid Kit.
