Imaginary Africa Trio [France] and Cielo Pordomingo [Argentina]

August 27, 2017 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Imaginary Africa trio:

an eclectic/electric trio exploring imaginary paths through Africa

A mixture of jazz, afrobeat, arab and minimal music that calls back to an imaginary Africa, where rhythm and improvisations are always important elements.

Mauro Basilio : electric cello, electronics, loops
Jean-François Petitjean : saxophones
Guillaume Arbonville : percussions

Born in 2011 in Berlin as a solo project for cello, electronics, loops, Imaginary Africa developed itself through Mauro Basilio’s movings, first in Italy then in France, involving many different artists.
In 2015, in Paris, it becomes a stable trio composed of cello (+ electronics and loops), saxophone and percussions.

Imaginary Africa’s music wants to be a representation of Africa, as an european eye and instrument would see it: curios about traditional rhythms, modes and melodies but with a mythical and enchanted vision, and an iconoclastic and modernist freedom at the same time. The result is a concert to listen and to dance, experimental but festive, made of apparently simple tracks, of short themes supported by a constant rhythm, but open to all improvisations and sound explorations, structured to give the musicians the freedom to reinvent everything each time.
