Explosive French Jazz Band Papanosh at Jazzkaar festival in April

April 19, 2017 / March 25, 2017

The French jazz band Papanosh will be performing at the International Tallinn Jazzkaar Festival!

"Pick five musicians among France's best young jazzmen, grant them an encyclopedic musical knowledge, then blend everything together and you'll get Papanosh.

With significant space devoted to groove, rhythmic group improvisation and the history of jazz language, the Papanosh musicians bring a breath of freshness to the notion of Imaginary Folklore. Papanosh's sound and musical identity can be traced back to the hereditary line of the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Papanosh offers a music that is as explosive in its result as it is coherent in its conception: a music full of imaginative joy, improvised risk, tender smiles and sonic rapture."

(Ludovic Florin, Jazzman, Jazz magazine)

This group is laureate of Jazz Migration 2013 (AJC) and is currently touring in the Baltic region, also performing at the Jazzkaar festival with their new album "A Chicken in a Bottle".
