Midweek Spotlight #9 | The Aly Keïta Duo Project
▻▻▻ Live at Oyoun ◅◅◅
The whirling Balafon-play of Aly Keita is spectacular. The sticks in his hands seem to fly over the claves. Coming from a musical family, Aly Keïta builds and plays his own instruments since childhood and made it next to some of the best: Omar Sosa, Joe Zawinul, Rhoda Scott, Paco Séry, Karim Ziad, Trilok Gurtu, und Jan Garbarek, Pharoah Sanders, Paolo Fresu, Etienne M'Bappé, Linley Marthe, Matthew Garrison, L. Soubramiam
Today Aly Keïta lives in Berlin, where he met the Dutch drummer Marcel van Cleef. In their music they wander between spectacular African rhythm, polyphony and elements of jazz and connect these to a wonderful and unique sound.
