Trio Ivoire Concert
Start Date: 10/30/2009Start Time: 8:00 PM
End Date: 10/30/2009End Time: 10:00 PM

Event Description
Hans Lüdemann - piano & electronics
Aly Keita - Balaphon & Sanza
Chander Sardjoe - drums & percussion

The TRIO IVOIRE is unique in instrumentation and musical scope, melting personal roots of African, European and Jazz traditions and uniting African balafon with piano, drums and electronics to create a contemporary sound that is without comparison. This has little to do with traditional African music, but a lot with finding artistic expression in a globalized reality. On the search of transporting traditional African instruments into the modern world on one hand, looking for new ways of expression in piano and Jazz music on the other, two worlds are approaching each other that seem far apart.
