AHMAD COMPAORÉ TRIO @ Jazz à Ouaga (30/04/2014) 23:00

Concert as part of the 22nd edition of the "Jazz à Ouaga" festival.

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

On the border between white Africa and black Africa, the AHMAD COMPAORÉ TRIO is a mix of unbridled jazz, blues rock and African grooves. Arising from the desire of Marseilles-based drummer and composer Ahmad Compaoré to get back to his African roots, it proposes a perfect blend of electric and acoustic music, at the crossroads of contemporary and traditional music.

The multiplicity of repertoires skilfully explores various genres, producing compositions with universal inspiration where the psychedelic riffs of the strings respond to the tribal pulsations of the percussion instruments. Revisiting ethno jazz, funk or improvisation, the AHMAD COMPAORÉ TRIO therefore takes an innovative look at Western music, African tradition and their respective tempos...
