Three Countries – one Language! Chamber Music from Africa, Middle East and Europe.
The music of JMO - Jan Galega Brönnimann (Switzerland), Prince Moussa Cissokho (Senegal) and Omri Hason (Israel) is a reminiscence of the art of storytelling. The trio creates a tension of traditional and modern music from Africa, Europe and the Middle East. The sparkling sound of the Kora (African Harp with 26 strings) meets the warm tone of the Bass Clarinet and the oriental percussion. „Al nge taa“ is the first release of the trio. It means „let's move!“ in Mandinka, a language spoken in Gambia, Mali and Senegal. The songs are written by the three musicians and reflect their different backgrounds. Listening to „Al nge taa“ is an unforgettable adventure thanks to its merging of different musical traditions, the band’s unique line-up and its wealth of ingenious melodies and rhythms.
