Nouvel album "Storyteller"

Biréli Lagrène

New album release concert

Biréli Lagrène lives for music and has been swinging with his guitar for almost half-a-century. Since the release of his first album when he was fourteen, Django Reinhardt’s most brilliant successor hasn’t stopped touring the world, collaborating with the crème de la crème (John McLaughlin, Paco de Lucia, Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius…) and meeting with success. With his touch, as delicate as a flower, and his brilliant virtuosity, he can get away with anything: light harmonics, unexpected chords, unreal notes. Biréli plays with everything imaginable and remains an insatiable music storyteller. For his new album, “Storyteller”, released in November 2018 by Naïve, he chose to tell entirely new tales. Its tracks carry us away to unprecedented destinations, in the company of a magician of tones and sounds, percussionist Mino Cinelu (who crossed paths with Herbie Hancock, Al DiMeola, Sting, Lou Reed…) and bass player Chris Minh Doky who has been enthralling audiences for more than twenty years with his technique, his creativity and his unbridled energy.

A true musical enchantment is what Biréli Lagrène has in store for us on this exceptional night at the Grand Ampitheater of the Université d’Assas.
