WE REAL COOL
Yoel Soto Gonzalez
On Monday 26 February, Costis Christodoulou returns to Gazarte with a very different performance, inaugurating the playful and enigmatic Kiddo Stage!
Titled C’Mon (Creative Music of Now) , pianist Costis Christodoulou’s new, electric group We Real Cool presents a fusion program with a sound that combines New Orleans boogie woogie with atmospheric slowjams, synth-funk with up-beat calypso, and cinematic soundtracks with Afro-Cuban jazz.
A unique musical experience, where audience and musicians will share sensations and emotions on the same level, without a stage, without chairs – an organic jazz mystique on Gazarte’s atmospheric, stone-built Kiddo Stage – seeking to preserve the immediacy and vitality of the most dynamic art form.
Original and unpublished pieces, work songs & spirituals, songs by Harry Belafonte, Afro-Cuban standards, scores from Spike Lee’s films, are connected with a free, improvisational approach, constituting the “creative music of now”, which is born in front of us and disappears at the same time, passing to another side.
Doors open: 20:00
