Abu Sadiya is believed to be a West African hunter, enslaved, who would have gone mad after the disappearance of his daughter, abducted by the moon. He would dance to convince the Night star
to return to him his beloved child ...
The meeting between jazz, rhythms and fashions of the stambeli will be done by three musiciens, in the company of the American drummer Nasheet Waits. Abu Sadiya is an almost narrative sequence, through uprooting, despair, death, transformation, and Yacine Boularès insists that the boundary between improvisation and written music is not always sensitive.
Yacine Boularès, Vincent Segal and Nasheet Waits venture between the streets of Tunis and Manhattan, between tradition, jazz and free music, between the tragedies of history and contemporary resilience, between old secrets and contemporary freedom. It is not only a homage to this African enslaved ; It is his revenge !
Yacine Boularès : saxophones, clarinet
