Nuits d’Afrique présente Kabey Konate et Farafina Roots

Tue 19 Jul 2022 • 06:00 pm Reggae
Scène TD-Radio-Canada - Montreal Gratuit
· by Rédaction PAN M 360

N’est pas n’importe qui qui fait les premières parties d’Alpha Blondy et de Tiken Jah Fakoly ! Le Reggae du charismatique Kabey Konate, établi à Montréal depuis 2017, est ponctué de sonorités traditionnelles mandingues qui lui donnent une saveur particulière, celle d’être imprégné par la sagesse des anciens. Celui qui se définit comme le Griot du Reggae offre des prestations hautes en couleur, ses propos engagés pour la paix et l’unité étant portés par un enthousiasme contagieux, par l’entrain et la gaieté dans sa voix. L’an dernier, à l’occasion du 35e Festival international Nuits d’Afrique, il a composé une chanson hommage à l’événement avec les artistes Kayiri et King Shadrock.

It’s not just anyone who gets to be the opening act for the likes of Alpha Blondy or Tiken Jah Fakoly! The reggae style of this charismatic musician, who has been living in Montreal since 2017, is punctuated with Mandinka rhythms, giving it a unique flavour—that of being steeped in the wisdom of the Old Ones. Considered the griot of reggae, Kabey Konate delivers an extremely colourful performance, while his lyrics advocating unity are carried by the infectious enthusiasm in his voice and his spirited joyful presence. Last year, Konate, along with artists Kayiri and King Shadrock, composed and performed a song in honour of Nuits d’Afrique’s 35th anniversary.

GRATUIT!
