La sortie culturelle de ce début d’année sera le concert du groupe Lo’Jo dans le cadre du Festival musical Al Qurain.

Un moment envoûtant et chaleureux vous attend avec ce groupe magique, le lundi 19 janvier à 20h au Théâtre du Musée National de Koweït (Gulf road – Kuwait city)

Lo’Jo c’est une odyssée musicale itinérante et polymorphe, qui croise les cuivres du jazz et ceux de l’Europe centrale, les mélodies d’ici et les instruments d’ailleurs, la fidélité et l’exploration. L’occasion de découvrir l’album « Cinema del mundo ».

Institut Francais du Koweit starts 2015 with the amazing Lo’Jo !

As part of the 21th Qurain Cultural Festival, The Institut Francais du Koweit and The National Council for Culture, Arts and Literature bring ” Lo’Jo” from France.

Lo’Jo is a kaleidoscopic sound bringing together French chanson, elements of jazz and pop, reggae end dub, circus and cabaret music, klezmer and East European Roma tunes, West African and Oriental tradition.

The band was founded in 1982 in Angers by singer/keyboardist Denis Péan and Richard Bourreau (violin/kora). These two have remained central to Lo’Jo throughout their history. For several years, with a rotating cast of members, they played events locally, working with acrobats, street theatre, mime, dancers and film as part of their overall presentation. They have subsequently maintained a communal lifestyle, based in Angers.

By the end of the 1980s, they were playing throughout Europe and had appeared in New York as part of an artists’ collective. Those who will join the team are Nicholas ’Kham’ Meslien (bass) and recently Baptiste Brondy (drums). In 1995 the group added Berber singer/saxophonist Yamina Nid El Mourid and her sister, Nadia, who brought a strong North African influence to the music.

In 1999, they journeyed to Bamako, Mali, to begin work on Bohème de Cristal. In 2002 they released the acclaimed Au Cabaret Sauvage. This was followed by a live album Ce Soir Là (2003), and a new studio album Bazar Savant (2006). In 2009 they released the album Cosmophono, and toured in the UK. For the first time in Kuwait you can experience memorable album, "Cinema del mundo".
