A warm and colorful album, introducing us to the world of Charles Kely. Charles Kely has created the open gasy style: an acoustic music from Madagascar, with a touch of bossa, jazz, blues, funk and subtle African influences. A musical journey through the Indian Ocean, South America and Africa, from Cesaria Evora to Baden-Powell via Compay Segundo...
The musicality of this album owes much to Charles Kely's unique guitar playing style, his vocals and the rich range of his musicians: Emile Biayenda, percussionist (Drums of Brazza), Julio Rakotonanahary, bassist (Eddy Louiss, Raul Paz) and Alain Debiossat, saxophonist (Sixun). The melodies are beaming, catchy, overwhelming you with the desire to be somewhere else, far far away, in Madagascar, Cape Verde, Brazil or Cuba.
