Femi Kuti & The Positive Force + Syna Awel « Thilissa Live Electro » – Nice Jazz Festival Sessions
25 May 2023

Taking up the torch, passing on the trance and rhythm by touring the world to sing his political battles... Femi Kuti is back on tour and, true to his convictions, he combines civic commitment with musical energy.
Beyond the need to perpetuate the shock of the appearance of Afrobeat on the musical scene, Femi Kuti remains an artist who knows how to offer his audience torrid, generous and danceable shows, where energy is combined with commitment. These concerts are unique experiences from which one never comes out unscathed; Femi and his band can stay on stage for four or five hours!
Syna Awel - 'Thilissa Live Electro
If we knew the soft and warm voice of the singer in her Oriental Jazz project, it is the strength of her ancestors that we now hear through the vibration of her vocal cords.
In this new Electro Deep Minimal project, Syna Awel is accompanied on stage by Tahine, a multi-instrumentalist of Malagasy origin. The duo fuses traditional Kabyle songs and electronic trance inspired by Acid Arab, DJ Snake, Paul Kalkbrenner, Boris Brejcha and Charlotte de Witte.
