We start the live-stream (real time, stream is not on demand!) about 1/2 h before the show starts. By clicking on "Now Live" a window opens, where you can watch the concert free of charge and without any registration. If you want, you can support this project with "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the (virtual) club!
Aly Keita is one of the grand masters of the balafon, the West African xylophone. The Ivorian musician won countless awards (including the German World Music Award "Ruth") and fits the balafon in interaction with artists such as Joe Zawinul, Omar Sosa and Jan Garbarek. Together with the Swiss clarinetist Jan Galega Brönnimann and Swiss drummer Lucas Niggli, both born in Cameroon, Keïta mixes the traditional African repertoire with Western jazz, Improvisation and African rhythms. This "Brotherhood of vibes and Grooves" takes the audience on an adventurous ride - from the deepest jungle to great lengths under the African sky and back to Europe.
