Anis Jouini was born in Tunisia, he was blessed to have encouraging parents who supported him to pursue his passion for music. At eleven years old they subscribed him to piano lessons where he discovered what is hidden behind a song, notes and measures. For Anis, it became natural to understand complicated musical details, and it was just the setup to match his ambitions. Then he realized a certain attraction to low bass tones, and that was the beginning of his love affair with bass guitars.
Anis enrolled at “The Conservatory Zeryeb for Contemporary and Classical Music”, the most reputed conservatory in Tunisia, but there were no bass guitar classes available at that time. Alternatively, Instructors advised him to pursue classical guitar lessons to capture the basics, and that’s exactly what he did for 5 years. Anis always saw himself as a bass player who would fully invest his time and resources towards learning the bass guitar playability, following every guitar magazine and learning from bass tabs and practicing with cover songs to bands he loves such as Metallica in addition to buying records to learn to play the bass like Anesthesia, Master of Puppets, and Justice for All, as well as many funk bass players like Victor Wooten, Larry Graham, Jaco Pastorius, Michel Hatzigeorgiou to name just a few of his inspirations. In 1999 he started performing professionally with his heavy progressive metal band Propaganda. In his dual role as composer and bass player, he performed at numerous concerts in Tunisia.
In 2006 Anis joined the Tunisian metal band Myrath, which was where his dreams of creating music and touring internationally with a world class band became a reality. Myrath is Tunisian Metal Band with Middle Eastern Influences. They have released three albums which have garnered both Myrath and Anis Jouini global attention, and acclaim their latest album “Legacy” is being realized as one of the best Metal albums of 2016 by fans and critics alike.
