Jazz Concert & Workshop

A singer playing the guitar. A guitarist who sings. An album on which these two exceptional characters show that in music, too, the whole can be bigger than the sum of its parts. Their common "obsession" opens up musical horizons, sounds like jazz and singer-songwriter-elegance, a trip from Cotonou via Rio to Memphis and Berlin. It is music that speaks for life, blues and pleasure. This duo, which at least sounds like a band, sometimes even as an orchestra, sings ten favorite songs, sometimes English, sometimes French, sometimes the Fantastic Célinish or Lionelish. It is believed that the pieces have always been known after the first hearing, but only one interpretation (Caetano Veloso’s "O Leãozinho"), the rest comes from the feathers of the two possessed.

This album is the culmination of a musical liaison that began as spontaneously as it still seems. Five years ago, the two musicians met for the first time in Berlin - an echo jazz-winning singer who had successfully translated the chansons of Henri Salvador, the body and stomach guitarist of Herbie Hancock, with her own four albums at the label Blue Grade.

The duo's "obsession" will be heard in July of this year as part of a West Africa tour organized by the Goethe-Institut. The tour starts in Dakar (Senegal), goes from Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), Lomé (Togo) to Lagos (Nigeria) and Accra (Ghana) and ends with a home game in Cotonou (Benin).

On the occassion of the concert, a Jazz Workshop will also take place at July 29, 2018.
