Renette Désir and Fabian Fiorini explore the complex and ambiguous relationships established between Africa and the Americas, after the transatlantic Slave Trade.
The duet comes face-to-face with the work of artists such as Duke Ellington, Neil Young, Charles Mingus, Max Roach and Caetano Veloso. Moving between these musical paths, they draw inspiration from the powerful texts by Haïtian poets like Jacques Roumain and Roussan Camille.
The result is at the same time crafted in every detail and entirely free, intimate and wild.
