Description

Døre kl 16 / koncert kl 17
Bemærk: Koncerten foregår på udendørsscenen på Onkel Dannys Plads

Den psychede afrobeat-kvintet Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers vender tilbage til København med den mageløse maliske guitarist Ahmed Ag Kaedy, og indtager scenen på Onkel Dannys Plads under årets Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers skubber i den grad afrobeat ud i nye retninger med deres medrivende, repetitive lydunivers. Med el-orgel og analoge synthesizere fører den Berlin-baserede kvintet i første omgang tankerne tilbage til 70ernes krautrock, men gruppen integrerer et frodigt virvar af genrer i deres afrofunkede musik – fra afrobeat over funk til den rituelle gnawamusik. Med saxofonist Johannes Schleiermacher i front skaber gruppen et medrivende lydunivers i en vekslen mellem fængslende groove, trancedannende rytmer og futuristisk computermusik.

Kvintetten er nu igen klar til at indtage verden på tour med deres gamle ven, den fremragende guitarist og sanger Ahmed Ag Kaedy (også kendt som Kaedi). Kaedy kommer fra den nordlige del af Mali, hvor han bl.a. leder avantgarde desert blues-trioen Amanar. Han har været børnesoldat under Malis nærmest konstante borgerkrig, men fandt sin vej ind i musikken og siges engang at have byttet sit gevær for en guitar. Det gnistrende samarbejde mellem Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers og Ahmed Ag Kaedy har ført til en fælles EP i 2017 og nu et fuldlængde album, som udkommer i foråret. Gruppen spillede en fremragende koncert på ALICE i 2018 og vender nu tilbage til København under årets Copenhagen Jazz Festival, hvor de indtager scenen på Onkel Dannys Plads.

Koncerten er en del af Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022, der finder sted fra 24. juni til 10. juli på 120 venues i hele hovedstaden. Se programmet på www.jazz.dk

In English

The psych afrobeat quintet Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers is returning to Copenhagen with the marvelous guitarist Ahmed Ag Kaedy, and will take over the outdoor stage at Onkel Dannys Plads during this year’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Please note: the concert takes place at Onkel Dannys Plads

Afrobeat can be a pretty formal, sterile and sometimes even boring affair in the hands of many of Fela Kuti's admirers worldwide. Thankfully this is not the case with the oddly named Onom Agemo: Led by the restless saxophonist Johannes Schleiermacher, this Berlin-based quintet has been pushing the boundaries of the genre to its most extreme, incorporating explosive Jazz improvisations, far out Krautrock, bubbly keyboard sounds and Psychedelia to create a spell-binding musical melange completely their own.

Now they are taking it to the road again with their old friend, exceptional Tuareg "desert blues" guitarist/singer Ahmed Ag Kaedy. Hailing from Kidal in the civil war-stricken north of Mali, Ahmed was a teen soldier before picking up an instrument to become a man of peace and music and is said to have swapped his gun for a guitar. His own band, Amanar, is considered to be one of the most influential voices of the modern, guitar-driven sound of the Sahel. After releasing a mutual seven inch and playing successful shows in 2018, the Malian / German Brotherhood is now back on the road and soon ready with their first full-length album. Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers and Ahmed Ag Kaedy played a great concert at ALICE in 2018, and the group is now returning to Copenhagen playing at Onkel Dannys Plads during this year’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022 takes place from June 24 – July 10 at 120 venues. See the full line-up at www.jazz.dk
