AHMAD COMPAORÉ TRIO (07/12/2018) 20:30

Concert-creation proposed by the World Music Centre.

Having shared the stage with Fred Frith, Barre Phillips or Marc Ribot, the insatiable drummer draws his inspiration in the influences instilled in various singular projects around jazz, blues, improvisation, experimental rock and fusion. But mostly at the root of his Egyptian and Burkinabé origins. Here, Africa outshines even more: from faraway tribal rhythms to the brass band parades of his childhood, the creative euphoria is a call of reality through the dream, in a very organic depth.

Tonight, Ahmad Compaoré performs alongside the prodigy guitarist Kelyn Crapp from California and Nicolas Folmer, one of the most talented French trumpet players of his generation. Gathered by the American bluesman Lucky Peterson to participate in his latest tour, the three musicians have travelled together around France during one year. In the course of their concerts, they have developed a great bond, as much human as artistic. Following a residency at the Cité de la Musique, they set the scene on three continents - Africa, America and Europe - with a jazz fusion repertoire, tinged with soul and world music.
