Kora Beat at Turin’s Milk Club

Kora Beat played at Turin’s Milk on March, 4: they introduced their recently released “Yakar” album. Kora Beat’s music merges African rhythms and melodies with a powerful modern jazz stream. Cheikh Fall’s voice and kora (a traditional west-African harp) and Gi Denitto’s alto saxophone make out the band’s sound, while electric bass (Andrea Di Marco), drums (Sam Mbaye) and African percussions (Badara Dieng) build a strong rhythm section. The 21st night of MILK Jazz WAY fair was in the sign of great music, with unexpected guests, and unchained dance, led by dancers from Turin and Africa. Jazz knows no boundaries.
