AHMAD COMPAORÉ SOLO (11/06/2015) 19:00
Concert as part of "Les Impromptus de l'Hôtel des Arts".
A proposal by the Association Jazz à Porquerolles.
Jazz à Porquerolles joins with the Hôtel des Arts de Toulon for a series of contemporary music concerts with some of the most thrilling musicians of the moment.
Ahmad Compaoré is a musician of freedom. With feet, fists and hands, he strikes, whips and strokes the brass of the cymbals and the skin of his drums. Of Egyptian and Burkinabé origins, he confirms his singular talent alongside Fred Frith, Marc Ribot, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Camel Zekri or Egyptian choreographer Karima Mansour. Free from boundaries, his musical world is a subtle mix of jazz, fusion and world music, sustained by Oriental and African influences, with great detours in improvisation. Ahmad Compaoré also teaches drums and contemporary percussion through his association La Boîte à Musique in Marseilles. Skilfully exploring various genres, he continues his journey on the road of rhythms, those of a musician without borders...
