duo Soogé/ African Ballads
The name of this duo is Soogé which means freedom (in Mooré),
the freedom that the breath of creation takes when inspiration invites itself to travel.
This musical journey are the « African ballads »
Dialogue with Rasmadi, musician from Burkina Faso,
in a “traditional-modern” spirit: a meeting point rather than a fusion point.
A resolutely atypical music, promising in sound and rich in emotion. An ode to humanity.
video recordings concert 12/2019
Neither a fusion of genres nor strictly traditional, the repertoire offers songs composed and sung by Rasmadi accompanied by electro-acoustic instruments and sound journeys initiated by Anantakara, on which the ngoni (traditional West African harp) will hem in its melodies.
The musical complicity of two creative minds…
The meeting of two very different worlds, both musically and culturally.
A meeting without a spirit of fusion that opens up a new sound space in an open, serene and joyful “in-between”.
A powerful and serene ode to humanity.
