After many concerts at home and abroad, the band Tamala (“travelers”) is back to lift a tip of the veil of their future album Lumba, which will be released on the Muziekpublique label in September.
In it Tamala, like the bird in the song Ätte Picce mi, makes up the state of a world in which the wealth is not distributed fairly, in which hypocrisy reigns at the expense of women, children, the weak, in which the earth is exhausted. It is time for Lumba, ‘the big day’ in Mandinka. A day when things are handled differently.
Mola Sylla is one of the great singers in the tradition of the Senegalese griots. With his special vocal timbre, he makes you gasp until the very last note. He is accompanied by the virtuoso kora player Bao Sissoko and the multi-talented Wouter Vandenabeele on violin.
Please note: this concert takes place in the garden of the Peruchet Marionette Museum, in the open air. So bring a jumper and a mackintosh in case of cold or rain.
