BALANI

AT THE BEGINNING, IT IS A GENTLE INVITATION TO DISCOVER A WARM AND POPULAR ATMOSPHERE.

Then Balani prepares the audience to dance on a retro futuristic electro with coupé-decalé accents. Then the energy rises again, the messages of the songs rise, the tempos soar until the catharsis guided by the skin drums.

 

Balani is the story of three guys who met Africa and never came back. Aware that the Africans had found a social, spiritual and artistic formula for transferring energy from earth to heaven through dance, making body, soul and spirit work in unison, they were amazed to discover their power to create real therapy for a West sick with its quest for materiality. They now have only one fixed idea: to get their fellow human beings dancing to what sounds like retro-futuristic music, a 60s Afro musician’s dream taking shape today. Between Congo, Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire, their electromagnetic music grabs you from head to toe. And just as your mind seems to let go and your body goes into a trance, convulsing to the beat, you realise that you are in fact as aware as ever. A rare sensation that these humble geniuses are finally bringing within our reach. Emmanuel Truchet – Nouvelle VAGUE 16/03/23
