Late Night Session: Que Vola?

“A musical conversation that sounds novel and exhilarating.” – The Times

“A French-Cuban Afro-Jazz mission that exudes originality and energy.” – Sunday Times

“Que Vola brings together three Afro-Cuban percussionists — all members of the Osain del Monte Orchestra — and seven French jazz musicians. The lead single from the group’s self-titled debut is “Calle Luz,” a quick, pattering original that reshapes a rumba rhythm around its jagged, four-horn arrangement. The West African roots of rumba come through in various ways here; amid all the rhythmic and harmonic complexity, you might even hear echoes of Fela Kuti’s Africa ’70 band in the sound of the Rhodes, bass and drums.” - THE NEW YORK TIMES

¿QUE VOLA? in the argo of La Havana is a unique musical project that brings together seven of France’s best young jazzmen with a trio of highly skilled Cuban percussionists. The brainchild of trombonist Fidel Fourneyron,  ¿QUE VOLA? takes the magnetic power of sacred Afro-Cuban rhythms, with their invocations of African gods, and envelopes them in the poesy of John Coltrane. Brass and wind take the place of chants and voices in a trance inducing dialogue with the deep rhythms of the Bata drums, Experience their unique, raw and capitvat9ing sound at this 15th Anniversary celebration of the Nø Førmat! record label.
