Fidel Fourneyron jazz concert

Blow away the winter blues with a warm evening of Portugese song, West African-inspired jazz and a Normandy welcome!

Oko with support from local Fado performers Abel Salgado and Rui Figueredo

Blow away the winter blues with a warm evening of Portugese song, West African-inspired jazz and a Normandy welcome!

As part of a short residency at ArtHouse Jersey organised with Normandy’s Jazz Sous Les Pommiers Festival, we are delighted to welcome trombone player and composer Fidel Fourneyron and his trio for a one-off performance of compositions from their latest West African inspired project, Oko.

Oko is the spirit invoked by the Yoruba people of Nigeria to ask for prodigality, abundance and fertility. And it to the Yoruba pantheon (whose vivacity in the Afro-Caribbean diaspora is a source of such extraordinary musical creativity) that Fidel went to nourish his imagination and explore the African roots that form the earliest sources of jazz.

Joined by Antoine Paganotti on drums and Thibaud Soulas on double bass with the warm breath of Fidel Fourneyron’s trombone, Oko promises a captivating and pulsating sound that takes us on a journey from contemporary European jazz to forge a whole different connection to the earth and the rhythms that shape us.

With support from a special Jersey fado duo, Abel Salgado (voice) and Rui Figueredo (guitar) have been performing fado in the Portugese restaurants of Jersey for over 35 years. The very soul of Portugese music and the Portugese people, fado is the music that originated from the wine cellars of Lisbon with that are sometimes sad, sometimes happy and covering love, loss, jealousy and revenge! Abel and Rui will open the evening before we welcome Fidel and his band.

The concert will be followed by a welcome drinks reception kindly hosted by Maison de la Normandie et de la Manche.

Fidel Fourneyron’s residency is supported by the Government of Jersey and the event is presented by ArtHouse Jersey in association with Maison de la Normandie et de la Manche.
