About this event

Defying any easy classification (is it contemporary jazz? world? Afro-Caribbean?), the enchantment of multi-instrumentalist Sélène Saint-Aimé’s musicking lies in that undefinable essence that is best experienced, not categorised.

It is an enchanted locale, where drums seem to sing and speak, and where the voice goes from florid passages in ethereal heights, to earthy growls peppered with voiced staccatos.

Largely eschewing language(s) per se in favour of her own improvised vocalisations, the double-bassist, singer and poet brings together crystalline scatting and mesmerising ululations, interplaying them sinuously with her trio’s drums and saxophone, as well as with her own spellbinding counterpoint on double bass.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
