BROTHERZONE

JAMAALADEEN TACUMA BASS JEAN-PAUL BOURELLY GUITAR
DARYL BURGEE DRUMS WADUD AHMAD POEMS, SPOKEN WORD

concert

Jamaladeen Tacuma's "Brotherzone" concept is a musical territory, in other words a brotherly interzone. With his free funk approach, his tight and deep attack, his highly syncopated playing, the bass wizard gives a "groove" (or rather a "swing") to music that takes it way beyond.
Together with Daryl Burgee, a creative and multi-talented drummer, and Jean-Paul Bourelly on guitar, he lays the foundation of an exemplary rock/funk power trio.
Wadud Ahmad, fourth member of this musical brotherhood, is a poet acclaimed by Sonia Sanchez as well as The Roots (listen to their "Raising Down" opus). His spoken word will perfectly fit the trio's open-mindedness that will take us to a world where rock, free, funk and hip-hop happily coexist.

 

SEAN NOONAN'S PAVEES DANCE FEATURING MALCOLM MOONEY (CAN), JAMAALADEEN TACUMA AND NORBERT BUERGER

MALCOLM MOONEY VOCALS, SPOKEN WORD JAMAALADEEN TACUMA BASS NORBERT BUERGER GUITAR SEAN NOONAN DRUMS

Sean Noonan calls himself an "Irish griot" who collects tales, legends, and life stories over the course of his journeys and transforms them into the raw material, not only of his drum playing, but of all his music. Together with Norbert Buerger, his alter ego, and Jamaaladeen Tacuma, mutant bassist, he has tracked down Malcolm Mooney, the original Can singer (back to "Monster Movie"). The latter remains famous for having been the shooting-star voice, half Soul, half psychedelic, of one of the more influential experimental Rock band in History. If it wasn't for a few cameo appearances on stage, Mooney has devoted himself to poetry, sculpture and teaching for forty years. His return is the most beautiful gift the "Irish griot" gives us.

 

PERE UBU "VISIONS OF THE MOON"

DAVID THOMAS VOCALS, PIANO KEITH MOLINE GUITARE, DOUBLE BASS ROBERT WHEELER SYNTHETISER, PIANO MICHELE TEMPLE GUITAR, DOUBLE BASS GAGARIN ELECTRONICS STEVE MEHLAN DRUMS, VOCALS

Popular and underground at the same time, Pere Ubu is the ultimate fathomless band: Rock band, pre-punk band, post-punk band... "art punk" band! Indeed, its music goes trough all stages thanks to the "abominable" David Thomas: strong-minded play writer; stunning admonishing tail-spin singer; satirist with a fondness for road networks' grandeur, for astounding exoticism, and (strangely) for birds.
In turns crystal-clear than dark, alert than tangled, but always responsive, here is Pere Ubu. With streaks of clippers-guitar; poorly-oiled fanciful keyboards; hectic epileptic rhythms; with dreamy refrains and abstract synthetic dissonances, here is Pere Ubu... an alternative rock band rather alternative than rock! Pere Ubu's music is gargantuan. You will adore!
