MAMMANE SANI + BIBI AHMED 4TET + CHRISTOPHER KIRKLEY + PHONO MUNDIAL (05/04/2014) 21:00
MAMMANE SANI (Traditional music with synthesizer // Sahelsounds // Niger) + BIBI AHMED 4TET (Tuareg music // Niger) + CHRISTOPHER KIRKLEY (Perspiration on the dance floor // Portland, USA) + PHONO MUNDIAL (Global selection extravaganza // Marseille).
BIBI AHMED 4TET was formed in the spring 2014 as part of a residency of creation in Marseilles, organised by L'Embobineuse to record an album. It gathers two members of Group Inerane (Agadez, Niger) - guitarist Bibi Ahmed and his fellow Ikali Adam - and two Marseilles-based musicians, drummer Ahmad Compaoré and bass player Jules Bernable. With an authentic view to explore their musical backgrounds, they deliver a unique blend of rock, blues, folk and Tuareg tradition, amplified by electric guitars with psychedelic overtones that make it unrivalled. A hypnotic blues like an antithesis to formatted "world" music...
