PRINCE & JEFF TRIO (21/06/2017) 19:30
Mandika fusion concert as part of the "World Music Day".
Between traditional Africa and the modernity of mixed sounds by these two artists with significant international careers, Prince Diabaté and Jeff Kellner invite us to a transcontinental journey from Conakry to Marseilles, thus remaining true to the melting pot of their cultures. The repertoire of their album "Faso" is an ensemble of compositions both traditional and pop, with incursions in blues and Western jazz. On stage, the presence of drummer Ahmad Compaoré brings a rhythmics with rock overtones. Drawing upon their diverse musical backgrounds and shared experience, the three musicians produce a new brand of rootsy West-African music, multi-faceted, of universal appeal.
