“Kalo-Yele”

Aly Keïta – balafon, kalimba
Jan Galega Brönnimann – bass & contrabass clarinet, soprano sax
Lucas Niggli – drums, percussion

Aly Keïta is one of the grand masters of the balafon, the West African xylophone. The Ivorian artist fit the balafon in interaction with greats such as Joe Zawinul, Omar Sosa and Jan Garbarek. Together with the Swiss musicians Jan Galega Brönnimann and Lucas Niggli, he mixes the traditional African repertoire with Western jazz, Improvisation and African rhythms. This “Brotherhood of vibes and grooves” takes the audience on an adventurous ride.

“If you ever wanted to try and classify the repertoire and interaction of these three musicians, I’d just have to wish you good luck! “
