Ibrahim Electric 26.11.2014 MPM Auditorium, 9PM

The leading international names on the bill are Ibrahim Electric and Steve Coleman &amp";" Five Elements, two ensembles that are reshaping the whole concept of jazz, expanding and developing it in various different directions while retaining the links between tradition and progress. Emotion and technique are at the heart of a programme committed to scheduling unmissable sessions at the MPM Auditorium. Ibrahim Electric’s style combines elements of soul, jazzand 60s Acid power beat, with rapid, punk-like passages in which the three musicians merge as one. Each member of the ensemble is a highly skilled and expressive musician, and this has given the band its outstanding unity.
