Acoustic Africa

Acoustic Africa

 

After a first edition in 2006 & 2007 with Habib Koite, Dobet Gnahore & Vusi Mahalasela, the second exhilarating musical journey focuses on the of the African women. If the power of the song is a reality in many places, it is a certainty in Africa. So what do you expect when African singers express themselves: this power is a fact!

Listen to the power of song, of singing, in the voices of Dobet Gnahoré, Manou Gallo and Kareyce Fotso.

Three voices of women from the Ivory Coast and Cameroon, three stage presences, three outlooks, three movements… but sharing the same spirit. And this, a dynamic song, deeply rooted in an approach that never denies its ancestral roots but welcomes influences from African and Afro-American movements such as funk, blues and Afro-pop.

It is a part of Africa that sings its deeply feminine side, and, for the US tour in Fall 2012, with the help and complicity of another woman, the renowned American guitarist, Leni Stern, whose most recent experiences on African soil have been nourished by the best raw musicians, most notably Bassekou Kouyaté, while learning to play the ngoni.

Two essential musicians bring this ensemble of women a rhythmic and melodic environment of the highest level: Aly Keita, the master Malian balafonist and Boris Tchango, the Togolese drummer, who has already been noticed playing with Dobet Gnahoré and Foofango.

At the heart of this group, the three African singers give their songs a power multiplied by shared experiences.

Line-up :

Manou Gallo : lead vocal, bass
Dobet Gnahoré : lead vocal, percussion
Kareyce Fotso : lead vocal, guitar, percussion
Leni Stern : lead vocal, guitar,
Aly Keïta : balafon
Zoumana Diarra : guitar
Wendlavim Zabsonre : drums, percussion
