2012.03.07 Club Balattou

We really enjoy playing at the Balattou, it feels like the kind of place that is constantly reverberating from years and years of music contained within its walls. As it has been the case before, the patrons, people attending the place and soundman were very helpful and nice to work with. 

This time we were playing as part of the Sily D'Or which is one of the series organized by the Festival Nuits d'Afrique, and we had a 1 hour set after the opening band Melodi. In spite of this being a Wednesday, the place was packed and the ambiance was great. For this show we had selected our most energetic material, and based on the reactions from the crowd we got the results we were looking for. One of the highlights that night was that we were honoured with the visit of M. Stanley Péan, well known journalist, novelist, writer and among other talents the radio host of Quand le Jazz est là at Espace Musique, Radio-Canada.

We opened the show with a very demanding piece, which at the time had no name assigned to it, we had code-named "Intro". As we were looking for a short, punchy name, a series of constructive exchanges took place that concluded with a very colorful name for this tune, and video below: we hope you enjoy "Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylonia, who died at 34, because a dandruff attack"
