Kora Talking

“…Urodzony w mie┼Ťcie Brikama, zwanym ÔÇ×Krain─ů koryÔÇŁ, Buba Badjie Kuyateh magicznym szyfrem d┼║wi─Ök├│w dociera do granic ludzkiej wra┼╝liwo┼Ťci. Raz daj─ůc upust d┼éawi─ůcej w gardle goryczy, innym razem rado┼Ťnie pl─ůsaj─ůc po dwudziestu jeden strunach swojego instrumentu. W jego muzyce zawarta jest niezno┼Ťna ┼Ťwiadomo┼Ť─ç czasu, przekle┼ästwo starzenia si─Ö, przemijaniaÔÇŽÔÇŁ

“Poczuli┼Ťmy z Bub─ů jak─ů┼Ť wi─Ö┼║ mimo obco┼Ťci. Nie zna┼éem jego pie┼Ťni, ale i on nie zna┼é niczego z moich stron, jednak ┼éadunek emocjonalny podczas tych spotka┼ä m├│wi┼é: trzeba co┼Ť razem zagra─ç. Sam na sam. Kora i skrzypce, spotkanie dalekich ┼Ťwiat├│w. Muzyka nie zna granic…”

BANTAMBA

Za┼éo┼╝eniem, kt├│re przy┼Ťwieca┼éo Bubie przy tworzeniu tego zespo┼éu by┼éo u┼╝ycie tradycyjnego afryka┼äskiego instrumentu – (rodzaj harfy) w nowy, ┼Ťwie┼╝y, autorski spos├│b.W dzieci┼ästwie, w rodzinie afryka┼äskich griot├│w Buba pozna┼é tradycyjny zachodnioafryka┼äski repertuar zwi─ůzany z tym instrumentem, r├│┼╝ne warianty wykonawcze z Gambii ale te┼╝ z s─ůsiednich kraj├│w – Senegalu, Mali. Tworz─ůc sw├│j zesp├│┼é Buba postanowi┼é odej┼Ť─ç od tradycyjnego podej┼Ťcia do repertuaru by grac muzyk─Ö nowoczesn─ů. Tak powsta┼é zespo┼é Bantamba, w kt├│rym wiod─ůc─ů role gra afryka┼äska kora ale ca┼éo┼Ťci obrazu dope┼éniaj─ů inne instrumenty: afryka┼äski calebasse i djembe, latynoskie bongosy i conga oraz gitara basowa w sekcji rytmicznej a w sekcji melodycznej klasyczna akustyczna, elektryczna gitara, pianino oraz tr─ůbka. Opr├│cz samych instrument├│w, oryginalno┼Ťci Bantambie nadaj─ů muzycy, kt├│rych korzenie muzyczne r├│wnie┼╝ s─ů r├│┼╝ne i kt├│rzy do muzyki zespo┼éu wnosz─ů elementy latynoskie, jazzowe czy wr─Öcz momentami brzmi─ůce rockowo riffy.

Bantamba is the musical creation of Buba Badjie Kuyateh, heralding from a long lineage of master musicians from The Gambia, West Africa. The inspiration behind this group was to blend the ancient and modern; combining the traditional West African 21-stringed harp (called kora) with contemporary, eclectic sounds from the streets of Warsaw representing by instruments like bass guitar, trumpet, piano, acoustic guitar, congas, african drum – djembe and percussion. Bringing together his African roots and revered traditional musicianship with a melting pot of artists and styles from Latino to jazz and rock, Bantamba more than most offers a new sound that is as original, funky and modern as it is enchanting and musically intricate.
