AKA MOON - BABA SISSOKO & BLACK MACHINE 

''CULTURE GRIOT''

(BELGICA-MALI, 2009) @

RESEÑA (DIVERDI) Y PRENSA

Aka Moon encabeza su página en la web con un Interactive experience, y no se refiere a nada del mundo digital sino a una voluntad de llegar al otro. El grupo belga se ha caracterizado desde sus inicios por interactuar con todas las tradiciones musicales –la música culta, la música étnica, el rock, el tecno...- y las expresiones artísticas –la danza, el teatro, el cine...- que le rodean. El movimiento perpetuo, sin centro fijo, expresado en un denso tráfico de polifonías y ritmos cambiantes, es su marca.

imageCon un mapa que traza sus movimientos desde África a India, un disco grabado con Baba Sissoko, y titulado Culture Griot, podría sonar tanto a una definición de su misión como a una vuelta a su alumbramiento como grupo, la iluminación que les sobrevino en medio de los pigmeos Aka. Lo sería sólo en parte, pues su absorción de lo africano le ha llevado tanto a la compleja armonía de los Aka como a la engranada maquinaria de los tambores del África Occidental. Y ahora a Mali. No es tanto que Baba Sissoko y Black Machine se integren en la noción del grupo, como que ambos encuentren un equilibrio en nada precario; no por nada se galardonó a Culture Griot como mejor álbum de música étnica grabado en Bélgica el pasado 2009. Resalta la facilidad con la que el trío se incorpora al coro de voces y percusiones sin perder su identidad sonora, ya dialogue con él como si de dos grupos distintos se tratasen, como Aka Djelia, tema que abre el disco y es su más emocionante expresión, o se fundan en una misma formación, como en el flotante Aka Teri Ya. Son los momentos en los que caminan juntos, como en un infeccioso Aka Folo Folo, cuando el engranaje funciona a la perfección y el álbum no admite el más mínimo pero. Aka Moon desconoce la posición de reposo.

**********************

Aka Moon, Baba Sissoko and his ensemble Black Machine present the result of their energetic collaboration, their album Culture Griot. While the musical touch of Aka Moon is immediately recognized, it is the African rhythms and melodies that dominate the work. They bring us amazingly powerful music and hypnotical chants. The album opens up to a "griot" universe. How could it be otherwise knowing the roots and the present of Baba and the interest of Aka Moon for the subtleties and the realities of the African continent? The combination of the virtuosity of Aka Moon and the compelling rhythm of Black Machine work wonderfully well, it is neither pure jazz nor pure music from Mali, they deliver the fusion of two musical universes. Aka Moon adds a sonority topped with grooves to the stirring rhythms of Black Machine. Together they boldly reinvent a musical style that defies the stereotypes of categories or fusion. This is a language of sound made up of rhythmical experiences, melody, form, space and the energy abundantly present in the music. It is a novel outcome composed of chants, of bold musical forms and of harmonies unusual in the traditional culture "griot." imageSource

*******************Baba Sissoko

Born in Bamako (Mali), Baba Sissoko is the undisputed master of tamani (the original talking drum), that he started to play since he was a child (thanks to the teaching of his grand-father Djeli Baba Sissoko) and from which he is able to extract all the notes simply with a one, natural movement. Baba Sissoko plays also ngoni, kamalengoni, guitar, balaphon, calebasse, sildrum and... he sings! He is from a great and ancient dynasty of griots from Mali: in the Malian tradition, griots are deputed to calm down hearts and souls, by means of music.

imageBaba Sissoko has been the first one to introduce the sound of tamani in the modern music of Mali. In the Baba compositions there is a great influence of Amadran, that is a repetitive and hypnotic musical structure typical from Mali by which, according to many researchers, blues was born. His style is peculiar: Baba loves to integrate melodies and rhythms of the Malian tradition (Bambara, Peul, Mandig e Sonrai) with the typical sounds of jazz and blues, creating fantastic musical effects. This also thanks to the numerous experiences with other musicians belonging to cultures and roots completely different from his background.

imageHis ability to play a wide range of musical instruments and his extreme sensitivity to other musical genders and expressions, brought him to cooperate with many fine musicians. Among others, he worked and cooperated with Habib Koite, Rokia Traore, Ibrahim Ferrer, Buena Vista Social Club, Don Moye and Art Ensemble of Chicago, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Enzo Avitabile; Miguel Anga Diaz, Omar Sosa, Chris Joris, Bob Stuwart, Aka Moon. In the 2010 he come out with its 10th new album "The Eyes Over the World" together with the Italian folk band "Il Pozzo di San Patrizio". At present, Baba is in tour with Eyes Over the World project, The Malian Tamani revolution, Aka Moon and Black Machine, being busy also promoting his albums "Culture Griot", "Djekafo" and "The Eyes Over the World". He is also working with "Afrocubism" the World Circuit new project, together with Cuban and Malian Stars like Bassekou Kouyate, Toumani Diabate, Eliade Ochoa, Kasse Mady Diabate, Djelimady Tounkara and many others.Source
