about

Persian Gulf is located right between a huge area covering India throughout the Mediterranean. Inescapable place for many travellers and traders, its culture has been influenced by Arabic’s, Indian’s and Mediterranean’s cultures.

Mohamed Alnuma was born and raised in the Persian Gulf before he went to France and created his band : Pêcheurs de Perles (Pearl divers). That name, as a symbol, reminds an ancient time when the Persian Gulf was the best place for pearl diving and was practised in the Isle of Barhein, Iran, South of Iraq, Kuwait and up to Yemen. On boats, musicians were bound to help pearl divers in giving a rhythm to their job.
Pearl diving has stopped, music has survived.
Author, composer, Mohamed offers a field taking root from that music and gathers other pearls from other cultures as Mediterranean or Indian one’s.
Each musician’s personality makes Mohamed’s original compositions richer and creates a bridge between the East and the West, just as a way to transmit some feelings and ideas from one culture to an other.
Beyond a musical junction, Mohamed and his French musicians have created a real human junction.
