Enjoy Chalaba

The German pianist Joachim Kühn, the Moroccan singer Majid Bekkas who also plays the oud and guembri and the Spanish percussionist Ramon Lopez will be taking us on a journey across the Mediterranean to the land of the Gnawa and trans-Saharan Africa. Joachim Kühn, inspired by his musical partnership with Ornette Coleman, likes taking risks and combines an avant-gardist style of jazz with traditional eastern and African music. It therefore comes as no surprise that he has brought together the many-facetted culture of Majid Bekkas with that of Ramon Lopez, a percussionist with an enthusiasm for flamenco and Indian music, to create a leaderless trio. The three musicians transcend melodies in their common quest for a trance-like state, a condition of sensual pleasure which is based on repetitive, almost obsessional phrasing and whose aim is to transport, transform and transfigure. The concert is also a journey with “Chalaba”, a core Gnawa song, at its centre. It is given expression in the traditional vocal manner by Majid Bekkas playing his guembri and is transposed into the world of jazz by Joachim Kühn who gives it a measured rhythmic beat. On this journey there are a number of musical stopovers that conjure up other emotions and impressions: reggae in “Enjoy”, flamenco in “Asmaa”, lyricism and meditation influenced by the tablas and Gnawi spirituality, joy, dance and last but not least modernity, born of tradition and a desire to venture into new territory. The time has come for us to listen attentively, to let our gaze rest on one of the artists and to marvel at the inventiveness of the dialogues between the guembri and the drums, at the natural grace of fingers energetically striking or gently stroking the keys of the piano, at the resonance produced by the membranes stretched across the instruments, at the teasing of a beat or at other moving sounds. And then to let the poetry of it all carry us away.
