Kara Sylla Ka Meet Friends
Kara Sylla Ka’s music is in the tradition of what he calls “afro blues”, a tradition that owes much to Ali Farka Touré, spiritual companion of a certain John Lee Hooker. For Kara, the blues is the canvas of an inspiration that draws on the sources of the African soul and pays tribute to its great characters.
At the crossroads between baroque and jazz, Linea curva exploits the audacity and modernity contained in this music to offer a personal and contemporary perspective. From the poetic oddities of Fontei to Neapolitan songs, from Purcell’s hymns to Irish plainsongs, expect an “original and unexpected” journey.
