Afrosouldescarga & Palmwine Records présentent : King Ayisoba live au Sonic, Lyon ! Samedi 21 mars 21h


L’univers de King Ayisoba est singulier et complexe. Les rythmes et danses frénétiques s’y mêlent à sa voix si particulière, tour à tour douce et suave, puis rocailleuse et tribale. Leurs concerts sont des expériences uniques, où les codes musicaux volent en éclats dans une énergie brute délivrée sans détour. King Ayisoba offre un univers où le monde des esprits fusionne avec les origines douloureuses de la musique Kologo, le béton et l’urbain du Hip Life, et les cris révoltés d’une jeunesse qui cherche encore son identité. Une transe entre la forêt mystique et le béton craqué d’Accra.



Dans le cadre de leur tournée européenne et après avoir retourné les plateaux de Radio Nova, France-Inter et RFI, la salle du Petit Bain à Paris et toutes les salles ou ils sont passés, nous les attendons avec impatience au Sonic, 4 Quai des Étroits, 69005 Lyon !

Première partie avec Renaud Bilombo, virtuose de la sanza congolaise !
PAF : 10 euros en prévente chez Sofa Records, rue d'Algérie, Lyon. 12 euros sur place.

Une soirée proposée par Palmwine Records et James Stewart.
