25 Sep (KEM) JAZZIZ (US) – 10 NEW JAZZ ALBUMS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT : OCTOBER 2018
Stéphane Galland – Stéphane Galland & (the Mystery of) KEM (Outnote Records)
Release date: October 26
Stéphane Galland started playing drums at the age of three and since then has developed an original musical language. His latest album draws inspiration from the term “Kem,” which in ancient Egypt referred to the color black, a symbol of darkness and fertility, to continue his sonic experimentations and pursue an exploration of the roots of the rhythm at the crossroads of all musical traditions he got to know. Joining him on the journey for (the Mystery of) KEM is a group of young, talented and adventurous as well as South-Indian Ravi Kulur, one of the world’s most prominent contemporary Carnatic flutists and frequent collaborator of Ravi Shankar.
