Grammy winner Gilberto Gil headlines the 5th Annual Cairo Jazz Festival

Grammy winner Gilberto Gil headlines the 5th Annual Cairo Jazz Festival | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

It only makes sense that Brazilian musician Gilberto Gil is this year’s “Guest of Honor” at the fifthCairo Jazz Festival. Each year, the festival pays tribute to a major musician who has influenced the genre of jazz, such as Egypt’s Omar Khairat and Lebanon’s Ziad Rahbani.

Gil is something of a phenomenon. Since the 1960s, he has pioneered new forms of music by blending together bossa nova, rock, reggae, folk, jazz, samba and African genres. His self-contained musical style is virtually inimitable.

Along the way, Gil’s socio-political infused songs reflected his activist roots and cries for change, prompting the Brazilian military junta to exile him.

Le monde sans frontières de Nomades Intercontinental

Le mercredi 6 mars, 20h

Institut français d’Egypte, Le Caire, Mounira (patio)

Nomades Intercontinental, une façon d’exprimer un monde sans frontières où les peuples se rencontrent et communiquent en toute sérénité. En effet, quoi de mieux que la musique, langage universel mêlant sentiments et sensations, pour expliquer ce que la parole ne peut dire : pas d’incompréhension, pas de mensonge pour ce langage du cœur…

Fondé en 2000 par le saxophoniste Florent Cornillet qui qualifie son style de «world Jazz», Nomades Intercontinental est un groupe aux influences mélangées: basé sur le jazz, musique symbole de liberté, s’y ajoutent les musiques traditionnelles et populaires du monde que Florent a parcouru et qui l’a inspiré.
Une soirée franco-égyptienne où les musiciens  jouent du world jazz : swing, latino aux influences parfois africaines ou orientales…

Les musiciens du Concert de jazz

Florent Cornillet : Saxophone Alto
Wael El Fashny : Chant et percussions
Amr El Bahrawi : Piano / clavier
Ahmed Nazmi : Guitare Basse
Moustapha Abbas : Batterie
