AHMAD COMPAORÉ TRIO @ Jazz à Ouaga (26/04/2014) 16:00

Concert as part of the Jazz School concept at the "Jazz à Ouaga" festival.

A coproduction by La Boîte à Musique and Association Jazz à Ouaga with the support of Spedidam.

Jazz à Ouaga, it is not just musical performances. The festival organisers have brought a touch of innovation to the event. Instead on staying confined to concert venues, Jazz à Ouaga now moves on to new grounds seeking to conquer the young generation which ignores the history of jazz and still has some misgivings about it. That is how the Jazz School concept was created to explain this musical genre to secondary school pupils and college students.

On the border between white Africa and black Africa, the AHMAD COMPAORÉ TRIO is a mix of unbridled jazz, blues rock and African grooves. Revisiting ethno jazz, funk or improvisation, it proposes a perfect blend of electric and acoustic music, at the crossroads of contemporary and traditional music. The AHMAD COMPAORÉ TRIO therefore takes an innovative look at Western music, African tradition and their respective tempos...
