Candomble rhythms meets Jazz
Alabê Ketujazz was founded in 2012 by French percussioinist/composer Antoine Olivier and Brazilian saxophonist/composter Glaucus Linx.
Together, Glaucus and Antoine created original music and textures inspired from rhythms and rituals, where the saxophone assumes the part of the Orixás telling their story through musical movements.
This artistic approach oponed many esthetic possibilities, transforming the raw material of the rituals into a new musical format, essentially Brazilian, where the spontaneous creativity of jazz meets the traditional rhythms of the Ketu Nation: Alabê Ketujazz.
