While there he translated classical poetry, such as the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh, into French. He has stated that he prefers to live in the West, saying in a 2000 interview that he has an "inability to work in the Arab countries, in which the way people live is still conditioned by halal and haram. Here I can produce contemporary art, I can work in freedom, and there is 'motion' around what I produce: journalism, concerts, programme…Nobody tells me to write a song for a specific political occasion." His music has been featured in the films Al Leja, directed by Ryad Chaia, and Elia Suleiman's Chronicle of a Disappearance, also he participated in Deep Forest's album Comparsa. Singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley was a fan of Azrie's music, and the two once had dinner. -Discography * 1971: Le chant nouveau des poètes Arabes * 1974: Wajd * 1977: L'épopée de Gilgames * 1979: Les Soufis * 1985: Chants de l'arbre oriental * 1989: Pour enfants seulement * 1990: Aromates * 1994: Suerte * 1995: Lapis Lazuli * 1998: Suerte Live * 1999: Pour enfants seulement * 1999: Omar Khayyam * 2001: Venessia * 2007: Chants d'amour et d'ivresse * 2008: Mystique * 2009: L'évangile selon Jean Read more on Last.fm.
