Adrien Merahi
Electric guitar

Born in Paris in 1985, Adrien Merahi began playing the guitar at the age of seven with his father, a great music lover. He then entered the Champigny-sur-Marne Municipal Conservatory of Music, where he discovered the different aspects of classical guitar and was introduced to jazz. In 2001, he was admitted to the Ecole Nationale de Musique de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, where he was unanimously awarded a gold medal. Adrien Merahi went on to perfect his musical expression and sense of melody at the CRD d'Argenteuil, where he won a chamber music prize. In 2004, he won the René Bartoli national competition, and in 2008, the Montigny-le-Bretonneux competition.


Adrien Merahi draws his inspiration from everything he meets, from classical music to tango, jazz, pop, Spanish music, electronic music and composition (editing music for Le Mouv).


Transmission is also a major element of his work. Every week he meets up with future musicians studying at the conservatoire, who learn with him about their passion for music and discover a means of expression.

Passionate about South American music and in search of new experiences, in 2014 he joined forces with pianist Mathieu Cepitelli in a rare duo paying tribute to the urban music of Buenos Aires, the tango.

In 2015, Adrien joined the Quinteto Emedéa, the fruit of the meeting of five musicians who share a passion and a common ambition: to rediscover the music of Astor Piazzolla.
