Info zu NOW

Since the group was founded 25 years ago, the career of Aka Moon has been punctuated by a myriad of original musical encounters. After their initiatory journey with the Aka Pygmies in 1992, an unappeased desire has always nourished the research of the three accomplices: the wish to share the knowledge, experience and secrets of other musicians from all backgrounds. Today, the necessity of the original trio is again expressed in NOW with the exceptional playing quality that has been acquired and refined over the course of numerous concerts. For although Aka Moon was undeniably born with a unique sound, the group has always made it evolve, absorbing, in particular, rhythms from the Orient, Africa or India. The staunch friendship that binds these three musicians lets an artistic urgency resonate, borne by the joy of improvisation, lightness of interpretation as well as great depth of expression. NOW confirms this cohesion thanks to an ongoing counterpoint in which three mysteriously complementary worlds intertwine, revealing their own originalities and styles.The titles of the compositions (Nomadism, The Visitor, Spiritual Exile...) evoke the themes of travel and the fascination of elsewhere, as well as an artistic and human commitment always in the forefront.

Aka Moon
The Belgian experimental jazz-rock combo Aka Moon is comprised of members Fabrizio Cassol (alto sax), Michel Hatzigeorgiou (electric bass), and Stèphane Galland (drums), and has been together since the early '90s. Taking its name from a culture of Pygmies, Aka Moon's music is a highly original blend of both jazz and dance theatre. During the group's career, they've augmented their sound from time to time with other players/instruments (keyboards, guitar, etc.). By 2001, the trio had issued a total of 11 albums (all on the Carbon 7 label), including 2001's In Real Time, which was created for Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker's dance company Rosas (the Tg Stan theatre company). During the play, the members of Aka Moon are present on stage for its duration, as they are considered actors in the piece as well.
