David Krakauer-Abraham Inc feat. Fred Wesley live at Jazz à la Villette 2010

Infernal mix for an ultimate groove: when a former accomplice of James Brown (Fred Wesley) pacts with the craziest of klezmer blowers (David Krakauer) and most azimuthed of Montreal DJs (SoCalled), the orgy is complete! Festive klezmer-funk-rap and contagious enough to make the dead dance! Meeting between African-American popular culture and the New York Jewish diaspora, this Abraham Inc. sounds obvious. Krakauer’s clarinet covers the Yiddish musical tradition, free jazz, the most lit and even electro rock. SoCalled’s patched machines and samplers breathe a wind of madness in hip-hop. And Wesley’s trombone invokes the funk gods to massive grooves. Is it jazz? Klezmer music? Rap? Funk?

Francesco Bearzatti live at Europajazz 2010

“Jazz lovers have a new icon to add to their cosmogony: the enigmatic photographer Tina Modotti (1896-1942). Her life has inspired novelists, poets and cartoonists, historians and political activists; today Tina relives at the center of a musical creation that will be cited in the Jazz dictionaries.
She will appear under the name of one of the most innovative saxophonists of the European scene, Francesco Bearzatti.
Francesco Bearzatti and Tina Modotti share the same regional origins (Friuli, North East Italy) and a life that led them to emigrate and to express themselves through art. Tina found in photography the space to enjoy life but also to denounce oppression, serve the cause of the resistance and the revolution of her time.
Tina confides to Francesco her dilemma of sharing between art and life; and music makes us hear this demanding call: Live!
”Art cannot exist without life, it is true; but in my case, life is always in fight and the art suffers” (1925)”

Bonga live at l’Alhambra Au Fil des Voix-Paris 2010

“Nearly 40 years after the release of Angola 72, the reference album in the history of world music and independence manifest among the Angolan population, Bonga travels in songs, during a special concert at the Alhambra, a life of music and exile.
For the first time in Bonga’s career, this concert is the subject of a film recording.
For this engaged artist, like for so many other of his Angolan compatriots before the independence, the music is a way to keep human dignity in the face of the oppressor.
We can take their land, their diamonds, their gas, their oil, we cannot take their music, the becomes a space of resistance, how to be and stay human.
This resistance involves an attachment to forms and traditional instruments of his country: Bonga plays “”dikanzas””, a percussion instrument in the shape of hit striated bamboo, invented by his ancestors. The rhythm which supplies his music, the “”Semba””, is a traditional rhythm of the Luanda region (ancestor of the Brazilian Samba).
If he surrounds himself by more modern instruments and formal elements (acoustic guitars, Portuguese Fado snippets or Brazilian music), the roots of his music are immersed in the traditions of his people.”
