Détails de l'événement
Kora Flamenca is the first opus of the Centre Des Musiciens Du Monde’s Collection in collaboration with ANALEKTA. Accompanied by flamenco guitarist Caroline Planté, bassist Jean Félix Mailloux, and percussionist Miguel Medina, Zal Sissokho fuses Mandinka culture with flamenco stylings, thus pushing the limits of his traditional instrument, the kora.
This collection features works created during artistic residencies offered by the Centre des musiciens du monde. In our modern age, when life moves at a frenetic pace, the Centre wanted to offer musicians the luxury of time to experiment, to write, to scrap what they’d done and start again: to fully explore their ideas and imagination. These residencies therefore provide time and space for artists, where they can meet other people, forge lasting musical relationships and nourish their creativity. The Centre is open to a wide range of artistic projects, which are selected on the basis of their quality and musicality.
