COMPAORÉ & LAJU @ Festival Phare (02/09/2017) 21:00
Cinema screening and live music as part of the 2nd edition of the short-film festival "Phare".
Duo performance on the movie "Soy Cuba" by Mikhaïl Kalatozov (1964).
An ethereal and melodic jazz, sustained by a rhythmic bond developed over the years by two musicians with singular backgrounds through their musical experiences together. Unclassifiable: contemporary sounds, Oriental rhythms, gentle touch on the strings, scratching on the drumheads, haunting melodies, overcharged percussion... From the shores of the Mediterranean Sea to the steppes of Central Asia, the encounter between these two identities with different easthetics truly makes all the richness of Jazz.
Ahmad Compaoré: drums, percussion
Vincent Laju: cello, electronics
