DUO COMPAORÉ & LAJU @ Festival MIMI (06/07/2016) 21:00
Carte blanche to Festival MIMI as part of "Plan B".
Improvised music in every sense, sustained by numerous influences and a rhythmic bond, developed over the years by two musicians with singular backgrounds through their musical experiences together. Unclassifiable, contemporary sounds, Oriental rhythms, gentle touch on the strings, scratching on the drumheads, haunting melodies, supercharged percussion... The encounter between different identities, cultures and easthetics truly makes all the richness of Jazz.
The performance takes place as part of the exhibition "PARADE" proposed by the MuCEM, which gathers model boats in a wonderful imaginary parade, witness of fabulous journeys: leaving the port of Marseilles to travel the Mediterranean Sea beyond Suez, these ships contributed to the wealth of the Marseilles territory through commercial exchanges, technical development and cultural mix. Immediate boarding all summer long...
