Ibou Tall & Jazz Mates
Wednesday 25 March 2020 8.00pm Exeter Phoenix
The dazzlingly impressive Senagalese jazz pianist Ibou Tall takes the classic sounds of piano standards but there is no denying his African influences. He brings a rich and rhythmic Afro jazz fusion to original material and well known tunes. A night of “Senjazz” which is a musical concept inspired by the very rich Afro rhythms, sounds and culture from Ibou’s Senegalese roots, as well as the infinite world of jazz.
Ibou Tall was born in Dakar, Senegal. He joined singer Alioune Mbaye Nder’s band Le Setsima Group as a composer and band leader, leading to the release of 10 albums. Ibou Tall has performed at jazz and world music venues and festivals across UK, Europe, Scandinavia and North America.
The line up includes the French musicians Martin Kern on sax and Guillaume Ottaviani on bass, British guitarist Martin Sean McConnell, and the exciting Italian drummer Paolo Adamo
