"Flali in Chicago" - Zanzibar


Flali is a mask used with a traditional dance in Ivory Coast and Chicago is one of the most prominent cities in the blues and boogie woogie history.

After a first album dedicated to the great Bessie Smith, the roots of blues, boogie woogie, barrelhouse, ragtime, rhythm n blues are revisited through compositions and arrangements of the band, a fusion with african traditional rhythms.

It all starts from the idea that those styles came from a cross-breeding of traditional music, a melt of european and african cultures, which happened on American soil.

What appears to be light music is actually styles of a deep density which have their own history and find their energy in the immense vitality of the african musical tradition.
