Jazz music can be mixed with almost every other genre, there are a few exceptions. I’ve listened to groups that combine jazz with flamenco and they are typical but not this group. Flamenkora is a trio of musicians that blends West African Mande music with authentic flamenco guitar and jazz elements.
The trio features German-born jazz trumpeter Volker Goetze, Senegalese and Paris-based kora master/vocalist Ali Boulo Cissoko, and rising flamenco guitarist Alejandro Moreno from Madrid, Spain. The group is making its debut with its self-titled album, Flamenkora. The music on this album will have you enthralled with its sound and brings a Spanish flavor to African music with a jazz spirit. Check out this super-talented jazz trio and support independent music and musicians worldwide. Happy listening!
