Oniric and electronic, the musical project Courrier Sud resonates the sounds of the Sahara, of mystical journeys and dreams that make us want to dance. Singer, composer and founder of the project, Rayane Kara carries in his music the influences of his dual French-Moroccan culture and of the artists who have marked him the most: Sébastien Tellier, Air, Gainsbourg. On stage with him, a luminous dream-machine turns and hypnotizes the crowd to the rhythm of his songs.
‘Garçon Voyage’ is the debut EP from the artist, which was released in May 2023 on Délicieuse Musique. Among his previous collaborations, the single ‘You Be The Sun’ released on the compilation of Bon Entendeur, the tracks ‘Dreams’ and ‘Sur Ma Bossa’, published by Kitsuné.
After a North American tour from Montreal to New York and the participation in festivals between the United States and France, he is now preparing his new live performances, promising to make a mark on the new French musical scene.
SJU’s creamy electronica swirls and meanders, taking you on a journey from Eastern European dystopia to a new Imagined Utopia. An Ode to the post-calamity generation, spoken in a childlike guise of playfulness and innocence. In only sofar a very short career, SJU has already performed in Berlin, London and New York and released with the french KITSUNE Musique label. Her song Rhythm In Your Pose was placed in the reboot HBO’s acclaimed Gossip Girl and her latest track NYE SKO has been added to the Fresh Finds & Fresh Finds Indie Spotify playlists with more than 1.3mil followers.
Upon embarking on her solo career, SJU is also known as the drummer for Ora The Molecule recently signed by MUTE Records. She runs her own Prague based headwear label BYSJU and made hats for artists such as Will.I.Am, Paul Weller, Gorillaz, JUNGLE and more.
