Fusion

Fusion

Maâlem Said Oughessal & the HOLLAND / HUSSAIN / POTTER Trio

Gnaoui jazz

Maâlem Said Oughessal, one of biggest talents of his generation, will connect with the trio composed of Dave Holland (bass), Zakir Hussain (tablas), and Chris Potter (saxophone). Dave Holland is a fundamental element in the evolution of contemporary jazz. He has shared musical adventures with masters such as Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny and many others. The guembri tones of Said Oughessal paired with the jazz rhythms of the HOLLAND / HUSSAIN / POTTER Trio propose a colourful fusion, subtle and smooth.

Maâlem Abdeslam Alikkane & Pepe Bao

A fusion of Gnaoui and Andalusian roots

Maâlem and artistic director Abdeslam Alikkane will take the stage with bassist Pepe Bao, a major musician from the Spanish music scene who co-directed alongside Andreas Lutz the group O’Funk’illo, and collaborated for many years with avec Raimundo Amador, Obús, Barón Rojo, and Medina Azahara.

Asma Hamzaoui (Bnat Timbuktu) & Fatoumata Diawara

A feminine construct fusion,
by two African artists
Their credo is courage and valour, they share both talent and authenticity, and they are leading the same fight. While Asma Hamzaoui plays the guembri in defiance of social taboo, Fatoumata Diawara sings on despite the prohibition of music imposed by northern Mali islamists. Asma Hamzaoui upholds tradition with a personal touch, and Fatoumata Diawara is preserving her African heritage, taking inspiration from the tradition of Wassoulou songs. The performance of these two great musicians will certainly be a moment of heightened emotion.

Maâlem Hassan Boussou & the Benin International Musical (BIM) collective

Gnaoua sounds and voodoo chants, a story of ancestors

Benin International Musical is a collective that represents the extraordinary creative effervescence of the Beninese music scene, heir to voodoo rhythms. Their collaboration with Maâlem Hassan Boussou will no doubt offer a very impressive fusion. Gnaoua rhythms and voodoo cult dance beats will take the audience back to the source, with vibrant and high-energy sound.
