AHMAD COMPAORÉ & FRIENDS (16/11/2014) 19:30

Musical encounter mixing afro-fusion, jazz and traditional music.

Laboratory of experimentation and creative citizenship, Le Point de Bascule proposes once again an atypical project. A strong leader of collective dynamism, drummer Ahmad Compaoré invites Malian balafon player Kaba Sanou in Marseilles for a musical journey through the African continent. They will be accompanied by guitarist Abdoulaye Kouyaté, Roman Gigoi on saxophone and his fellow musician Nicolas Oustiakine from Toulouse on bass. Three days of creation will lead to this unique concert on the theme of cultural crossroads with various origins (Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso).

Kaba Sanou: balafon, voice
Abdoulaye Kouyaté: guitar, voice
Roman Gigoi: saxophone, clarinets
