AHMAD INVITES PRINCE & JEFF (13/05/2017) 16:00

Short concert (Mandinka fusion) and meeting with the children.

A proposal by La Boîte à Musique with the support of Friche la Belle de Mai.

Drummer and percussionist Ahmad Compaoré invites us to a transcontinental journey from Conakry to Marseilles, accompanied by Prince Diabaté, kora player born to a prominent Malinke griot family from Guinea, and Jeff Kellner, eclectic guitarist and specialist of African music. Drawing upon their diverse musical backgrounds, they propose a repertoire both traditional and pop, with incursions in blues and Western jazz. A successful meeting between modernity and Mandinka tradition.

The concert will be followed with a didactic and fun meeting with the children to exchange views on various themes: musical styles, families of instruments, musical practice, etc...

Prince Diabaté: kora, kamelen n'goni, voice
Jeff Kellner: guitars
Ahmad Compaoré: drums
