Wednesday July 21 21h Yaya Combo (aperitif and 1st part) & Sheik of Swing (2nd part)
Yaya Combo (aperitif and 1st part)
Four high-flying musicians from Toulouse take you on a musical journey from the groove of New Orleans to the swing of Chicago with a few detours through the West Indies.
This quartet is composed of Gérard Siffert on trumpet, Pierre-Louis Puig on double bass, Jérôme Arlet on resonator guitar and vocals, Jean-Luc Guiraud on drums and vocals.
Together, they freely revisit standards and lesser-known themes for a music rich in beautiful tunes (often sung) supported by a gentleman's swing.
Sheik of Swing (2nd part)
Swing of the Roaring Twenties, waltzes and rhythms of Eastern countries, the musicians of Sheik of Swing offer you an effervescent musical journey.
Heirs of Django and respectful of the great master, the gypsy jazz of Sheik of Swing has fun keeping the best of the style, and presents you its declinations: dancing swings of the Roaring Twenties, little unknown gems of Eastern music, and innovations with an interpretation as poetic as it is swift.
Each performance is a moment of sharing with the audience, an exchange of energy that flatters the heart, legs and ears.
This Toulouse quartet is composed of : Clément Salles on clarinet, Sylvain Peyrières on guitar, Benjamin Bobenrieth on guitar and Vincent Hemery on double bass.
They will transport us into the warm and electric atmosphere of the swing years.
