About the artists :
Chérif Soumano is a rising star of the Kora; he offers music of his time while being deeply rooted with the traditional repertoire that his father transmitted to him in Mali. He has performed with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Roberto Fonseca, co-founded the World Kora Trio and recorded for Marcus Miller. He is undoubtedly one of the most talented and promising Kora players of his generation by his talent to communicate musically with all types of music, without mentioning his exceptional virtuosity coupled with great expressiveness.
Shahnawaz Ahmed Khan is quite an unusual classical Indian musician, playing various styles on modern guitar with unique technique and incredible ease. Accompanied by the young talent Shahbaaz Khan at the tabla, they will present their respective traditional repertoire, as well as some pieces resulting from their residency, which took place at the Alliance Française de Delhi.
About [In]Chorus
[In]Chorus is a musical platform created by the association Kalasetu Alliance Française de Delhi in 2016 and for the promotion of promising young musicians of all genres (particularly traditional music), Indian and French, through residencies, concerts, meetings and workshops. The idea of this platform is to encourage a talented Indian musician to participate in the development of a musical project or to strengthen an already existing collaboration with a Francophone artist.
The events are organized in collaboration with the Ambassade de France en Inde, l'Institut français and the network of Alliances françaises in India, with the support of many sponsors.
